N.Korea threatens to attack U.S. mainland, S.Korea

State media vows overwhelming force against Seoul's proposed 'beheading' operation

North Korea on Tuesday threatened to attack the U.S. mainland and South Korea if Seoul shows any sign of carrying out a "beheading operation" targeting Kim Jong Un.

The threat, which comes ahead of the annual U.S.-South Korea military drills, follows skyrocketing tensions in the wake of Pyongyang's fourth nuclear test and recent satellite launch.
