South Korea warned that it would retaliate against any provocation from North Korea, a day after the North threatened to tear up the armistice that ended the Korean War in 1953.

Army General Kim Yong's briefing followed North Korea's announcement yesterday that it would "completely declare invalid" the armistice agreement in response to US-led moves to toughen UN sanctions on North Korea after its recent nuclear test.

The announcement, attributed to the spokesman of the North Korean army's supreme command, also threatened an undefined "strike of justice" against a target of the North's choosing.
