U.S. supersonic strategic bombers stage military drills over Korean peninsula

N.Korean state media reported military exercise ahead of announcement from South Korea and U.S.

The U.S. Air Force's supersonic B-1B strategic bombers conducted “nuclear bomb dropping drills” over the Korean Peninsula on Monday, North Korea's state-run outlet the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Tuesday.

KCNA’s report is notable: neither South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense (MND) or United States Forces Korea (USFK) announced the joint military drills prior to their taking place.
