A video released by North Korea has depicted a nuclear attack on Washington, as an angry Pyongyang continued to hit out against joint military drills between South Korea and the United States, Al Jazeera reports.
The four-minute state media video – titled “Last Chance” – showed a digitally created scene of a missile being fired from a North Korean submarine and wiping out the US capital.
Pyongyang, which says the military drills are a dress rehearsal for an invasion, was angered when South Korean media reported that the exercises included training for a “decapitation strike” on the North’s top leaders.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday warned his military was prepared to attack Seoul’s presidential palace unless South Korean President Park Geun-hye apologised for “treason” and executed officials Pyongyang accuses of planning to attack it.
It should be recalled that North Korea fired five short-range projectiles into the sea off its east coast on Monday, South Korea’s military said, amid heightened tension over the isolated country’s nuclear and rocket programs.
