NKorea Threatens Specific Attacks on SKorean Media

5 June 2012

North Korea’s military warned on Monday that troops have aimed artillery at the specific coordinates of South Korean media groups as Pyongyang threatened a “merciless sacred war” over perceived insults.

The North Korean statement, which expresses outrage over South Korean media criticism of ongoing children’s festivals in Pyongyang, is the latest in a series of threats aimed at Seoul’s conservative government and news agencies following the December death of Kim Jong Il, the father of new leader Kim Jong Un.
