North KoreaÂ has threatened to attack South Korea “without notice” in response to anti-Pyongyang rallies on the anniversary of the death of its former leader.
The threat to launch an unannounced strike was conveyed in a fax sent from the North’s National Defence Commission to South Korea’s National Security Council, according to Yonhap news agency.
It came shortly after several conservative groups held protests in Seoul on the second anniversary of the death of the military regime’s former leader Kim Jong-il.
Some protestors reportedly burnt photographs of the current leader Kim Jong-un, an action condemned in North Korea as an insult of the “highest indignity”.
