NKorea puts military on 'special alert'



The communist nation's army made the announcement Monday on the same day that the country said it was restarting key reconciliation projects with South Korea, to reunite separated families and organize joint tourism.

The North's army said its troops would go on "a special alert" starting Monday, when South Korean and US militaries planned to start annual computer-simulated war games.

The statement, carried by the country's official Korean Central News Agency, says the North would retaliate mercilessly at the "slightest military provocation" from South Korea and the US. The two allies say their manoeuvres are purely defensive.
