South Korea has begun fitting naval destroyers with a new, indigenously-developed cruise missile capable of making precision strikes anywhere in North Korea.

Yonhap news agency quoted a senior military official as saying the South had armed two destroyers with 32 of its Hyunmu 3C Tomahawk-style cruise missiles.

The missiles have a range of 400 kilometres and are capable of reaching targets in the farthest corners of North Korea within a three-metre degree of accuracy.

The unidentified military official said the deployment was partly a response to North Korea's strengthened naval presence off the peninsula's west coast.
