North Korea said Monday that it would soon initiate “special actions” aimed at destroying the South Korean president and his government.
North Korean armed forces will use “unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style” to carry out the actions, the official Korean Central News Agency said in a report, adding that the operation would take 3 or 4 minutes.
It did not specify what those actions would involve.
An unusual broadcast on North Korean state television also announced the planned measures and showed images of people throwing rocks at a caricature of Lee Myung-bak, the South Korean president.
North Korean state media have consistently lambasted the conservative Lee and his administration. Recent reports have described them as “rats.”
