N. Korea issues air raid alert, orders military to take immediate actions
SEOUL, March 21 (Yonhap) -- North Korea issued air raid alerts and ordered its military to take immediate action, the country's state media outlet said Thursday.
Korean Central Television, a TV and radio broadcaster, said the alert was issued at 9:32 a.m. with military units and civilians told to take cover. It added that authorities called on the armed forces to take countermeasures to reduce damage.
The broadcaster did not say if an attack is under way or expected, indicating it may be a drill. The North has carried out similar air raid drills in the past, and ordered blackouts during nighttime exercises.
Related to the air raid alert, South Korea's military confirmed the North carried out a drill.
"The drill may be in response to the earlier deployment of a U.S. B-52 bomber over South Korea," an official said. He added that the alert is similar to civil defense air raid drills carried out by Seoul.
