Pyongyang denounces Washington over flight by B-1 bombers near coast

The North Korean government on Wednesday denounced the US over its flight of two B-1B bombers, along with two American F-16 fighters and two South Korean F-15 fighters, on Monday near North Korea's coast. Washington ordered the flight as a warning to Pyongyang following the nuclear test conducted by the North two days earlier. In a statement issued by the state-run news agency KCNA, Pyongyang said the US should "not act rashly", claiming "The U.S. imperialists are attempting to rationalize their invasion ambition, and as a pretext and in an act that shows their true intentions, they are pushing strategic bombers into South Korean airspace and, in the process, trying to find an opportunity for a preemptive strike."
