The Wall Street Journal: Tensions escalate with North Korea as U.S. planes patrol coast, Pyongyang warns it will attack

In a new escalation of hostility between Washington and Pyongyang, North Korea’s foreign minister warned in a United Nations speech Saturday that a rocket attack on the U.S. mainland was “inevitable” while U.S. warplanes flew off the east coast of North Korea in an explicit show of force.

A total of eight U.S. aircraft flew close to the North Korean coastline while remaining in international airspace, the Pentagon said in a statement, adding it was the farthest north of the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea that U.S. warplanes have flown since North Korea started testing ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons in the 1990s.
