N.K's attempt to incite war fears among foreigners won't work: presidential spokeswoman
SEOUL, April 9 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's attempt to incite fears of war among foreigners in South Korea won't work, Seoul's presidential spokeswoman said Tuesday, after Pyongyang warned expats in the South to come up with evacuation plans if they don't want to fall victim to war.

The North's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee issued the warning to "all foreign institutions and enterprises and foreigners including tourists in Seoul and all other parts of South Korea," saying the situation on the Korean Peninsula is "inching close to a thermonuclear war."

   Seoul's presidential spokeswoman Kim Haing said the warning is seen as psychological warfare.
