United States bombers fly over Korean Peninsula after North Korea missile test

US bombers fly over Korean Peninsula in response to N. Korea's ICBM test

The United States flew two long-range strategic bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Saturday for a joint drill with South Korea.

The combine of B-1B Lancer vital aircraft flew from a U.S. base on Guam and was joined by U.S. Furthermore, South Korean stream contenders to lead the reenacted pulverization of a foe ballistic rocket launcher and underground offices, the South's aviation based armed forces said.

"North Korea's actions are a threat to our allies, partners and homeland", Pacific Air Forces commander, General Terrence O' Shaughnessy, said in a statement.

South Korean and U.S. fighter jets also conducted precision strike drills aimed at attacking enemy targets hidden underground.

The test sparked global alarm as it suggested North Korea now possessed an ICBM capable of reaching Alaska, a major milestone for the reclusive, nuclear-armed state.

The Korean Demilitarized Zone is a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula.




The leaders of Sweden and Japan have demanded that North Korea halts missile tests, and pledged increased cooperation in the U.N. Security Council. The penetrate takes after a jointly mounted guns and rocket practice by South Korean and USA powers a day after the North's ICBM test.

This undated photo distributed on Friday, June 9, 2017, by the North Korean government, shows a test of a new type of cruise missile launch at an undisclosed location in North Korea.

In a meeting in Hamburg, Germany, they pledged to boost pressure on North Korea to curb its weapons programs, as well as to push China - the main economic and diplomatic benefactor of North Korea - to rein in its defiant neighbor, according to a senior Japanese official.

He said: "I appreciate the things that you have done relative to the very substantial problem that we all face in North Korea, a problem that something has to be done about".

The missile was launched around 0040 GMT from an airfield in Panghyon, about 100 km (60 miles) northwest of the North's capital, Pyongyang, the South Korean military said.

Trump has voiced his frustration in recent days that China hasn't done more. Trump the same day warned of a "severe response" to the latest missile test. And if it fired at a normal trajectory it could put Alaska in its range.
