South Korea Holds War Games Following North Korean ICBM Test

HeadlineJul 07, 2017

In the Sea of Japan, South Korean jets and warships fired a barrage of missiles Thursday in a major live-fire exercise that came just two days after North Korea successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile. At the Pentagon, Defense Secretary James Mattis said the ICBM test didn’t mean the U.S. is closer to war with North Korea. The statement contradicted Donald Trump’s comment earlier in the day that he’s considering “pretty severe things” in response to North Korea’s missile test. Meanwhile, in the North Korean capital Pyongyang, thousands of people attended a mass rally and dance party organized to celebrate the country’s new weapon.
