    N Korea stages ‘tactical nuclear attack drill’ in warning to enemies – By Al Jazeera and News Agencies (Al Jazeera) / Sept 2, 2023

    Pyongyang says it carried out a simulated tactical nuclear attack drill with mock atomic warheads attached to two long-range cruise missiles.

    North Korea has announced that it conducted a simulated “tactical nuclear attack” drill with two long-range missiles equipped with mock atomic warheads.

    The KCNA news agency, in a report on Sunday, said the drill was carried out early on Saturday to “warn enemies” that the country would be prepared in case of nuclear war and pledged again to bolster military deterrence against South Korea and the United States.

    The two cruise missiles carrying mock nuclear warheads were fired towards the West Sea off the peninsula and flew 1,500km (930 miles) at a preset altitude of 150 metres, it said.

    The launches were the latest in a series of missile tests and military exercises conducted by Pyongyang in recent weeks, including a failed spy satellite launch late last month.
