(SEOUL, South Korea) — North Korea issued a warning to its southern neighbor on Monday, vowing to take “special action” against South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and his followers.
In a breaking news broadcast, North Korea’s state TV announced the attack will be carried out soon by its special operation action unit under military high command. The broadcast said the attack “will be unprecedented,” involve a “form of fire” and will take “three to four minutes” to complete.
The North Korean foreign ministry also threatened action against South Korea’s government for insulting its leadership and announcing a new cruise missile capable of striking anywhere in the North.
