N Korea-US bomber

SEOUL, March 20 (Yonhap) -- North Korea warned Wednesday that it will take a military action should the United States deploy B-52 strategic bombers again on the peninsula.

"We are keeping close tabs on the activity of the B-52 strategic bomber," a spokesperson for the North's foreign ministry said, according to its official news agency KCNA.

If the bomber appears again over the Korean Peninsula, it won't be able to avoid a strong military response, added the unnamed spokesperson.

The U.S. sent at least one B-52 based on Guam to Korea for ongoing joint military drills, apparently in a show of firepower.
