North Korea

    North Korea has blamed South Korea and the U.S. for provoking its attack on a South Korean island Nov. 23. The communist state also issued a warning that it is prepared to strike again as the U.S. and South Korea embark on a four-day naval exercise.

    “If the warmongering South Korean puppets fail to return to their senses and commit another reckless military provocation, our army will carry out second and third rounds of powerful physical retaliatory strikes without hesitation,” North Korea said in a statement, according to the Times of India.
