North Korea holds 'tactical nuclear attack' drill, warns US, South Korea of 'real nuclear crisis'

North Korea held a "tactical nuclear attack" drill with the goal of warning the United States and South Korea of a "real nuclear crisis," state-run media said Sunday.
"In the early morning of September 2, a tactical nuclear attack virtual launch drill was held to warn the enemy of a real nuclear crisis," North Korea's state-run KCNA reported, as translated.
The communist country said that the drill came in response to the "recklessness and danger" posed by U.S. and South Korea's recent joint military exercises.
Both Washington and Seoul officials have said their drills are defensive, according to The Associated Press.
North Korea's drill involved the launch of "long-range strategic cruise missiles," the state outlet also said.
