PYONGYANG – The North Korean government has vowed to attack South Korea without warning if anti-North Korean protests continue in the south.
"The supreme command of the Korean People’s Army Tuesday issued an ultimatum to the South Korean puppet group," Pyongyang’s official news agency, KCNA, said.
Threatening that it would not give any advance notice before attacking South Korea, the North warned: "Our retaliatory action will start without any notice from now."
North Korea said it was responding to insults from the "puppet authorities" in the South, who yesterday held a rally against the North in Seoul.
While North Koreans were celebrating the 101st anniversary of Kim Il Sung’s birth, South Koreans protested recent threats from the North including burning North Korean leaders in effigy.
