North Korea has threatened "indiscriminate" nuclear strikes against South Korea and the United States if they push ahead with joint military drills.

The exercises, this year involving more than 300,000 personnel, are an annual event and are prone to generate tensions.

The order for a "pre-emptive nuclear strike of justice" was made in a statement put out by Pyongyang.

The South's Defence Ministry has warned Pyongyang against any "rash act that brings destruction upon itself".
