Via fax, North Korea threatens to attack South Korea

South Korea responds by promising "resolute punishment"

North Korea on Friday threatened to attack South Korea without any notice via a fax sent to South Korea's National Security Council, the Ministry of Defence said in Seoul.

The fax made reference to recent demonstrations in which effigies of Kim Jong Un were burnt in Seoul on the anniversary of Kim Jong Il's death, an issue that often aggravates the North.
