N. Korea slams South's 'lunatic' military display
SEOUL (AFP) - North Korea on Wednesday condemned South Korea's "lunatic hostility" in staging a military parade that showcased a cruise missile capable of precision strikes against the leadership in Pyongyang.
Tuesday's display of weaponry in Seoul was the largest for a decade, involving 11,000 troops, 120 aircraft, tanks, heavy artillery and a range of missiles.
Although North Korea regularly stages far larger military parades in Pyongyang, it took exception to what it saw as a provocative, confrontational exercise.
"The puppets staged an unprecedented display of lunatic hostility," said the official ruling party mouthpiece, Rodong Sinmun.
