N.Korean military threatens to raze U.S. army bases in S.Korea

Nuclear and preemptive strikes included in 'toughest countermeasures' against U.S.

North Korea threatened to wipe out the U.S. army bases in South Korea within a few minutes, warning of the “toughest countermeasures” against the U.S., the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Friday.

In a statement issued by the spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), the North blamed the Trump administration’s “reckless lunacy of military provocation” for increasing tensions on the Korean peninsula.
