BY A STAFF REPORTER: North Korea conducted a simulated tactical nuclear attack drill over the weekend, attaching a fake nuclear warhead to two long-range cruise missiles tested at sea. According to sources, the operation was carried out in response to joint military action by the United States and South Korea.

A firing exercise for simulated strategic nuclear strikes was conducted in the early hours of September 2 to warn the enemy of the dangers of actual nuclear war. Two long-range tactical cruise missiles have been fired into the sea south from North Korea's west coast.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said on Saturday that an unspecified number of cruise missiles were fired into the Yellow Sea at around 4 a.m. local time.
