North Korea threatened to "retaliate against the U.S. with tremendous muscle" if it didn't cancel multinational military exercises scheduled to begin tomorrow.

South Korea conducts the yearly exercises, called Ulchi Freedom Guardian, with the United States and other allies to enhance readiness, protect the region and maintain stability on the Korean peninsula.

A US State Department official said it was aware of the threats but said that the exercises are transparent, defense-minded and are designed to increase the readiness of South Korea and the region.
