International: North Korean nuclear drills a "warning" to US, South Korea

7:55 am on 11 October 2022

North Korea recently launched a barrage of so-called "tactical nuclear" missile drills  overseen by Kim Jong Un  himself.

The drills came as a 'warning' after joint US and South Korea naval exercises were done near the Korean peninsuela. 

North Korea carried out their 7th launch in two weeks as they fired two ballistic missiles on Sunday morning.

The country recently revisted its nuclear laws,  with Kim wanting to develop and prioritise tactical nuclear weapons since a key party congress in January 2021.
