South Korea holds live-fire missile drills

South Korea has conducted a missile drill simulating an attack on the North Korean nuclear site, in response to Pyongyang’s sixth missile test.

A surface-to-surface missile and long-range air-to-ground missile “accurately struck” targets in the Sea of Japan, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

This comes after the US Defence Secretary, James Mattis said any threat to the US or its allies by North Korea will be met with a “massive military response”.

Donald Trump took to twitter to express his dismay in finding a peaceful solution: “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!”

North Korea claimed on Sunday that it successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb, which possibly triggered an artificial earthquake, which the U.S. Geological Survey reported as having a 6.3 magnitude.
