Bomber flew close to N Korean border amid standoff: US military
The US military says one of its supersonic bombers that flew over South Korea earlier this week in a display of military power approached the border with North Korea.
The flight will likely anger North Korea, which is extremely sensitive to the deployment of high-tech US weapons systems.
The US often sends powerful warplanes to South in times of heightened animosity between the Koreas, but it is still unusual for such aircraft to fly near the rivals’ border, the world’s most heavily fortified.
