S. Korea denounces N. Korea's bellicose threats as 'useless'
SEOUL, April 11 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Thursday denounced a barrage of warlike threats from North Korea as a "useless" tactic, making it clear that Pyongyang will face consequences if it follows through with an expected missile launch.

The South Korean and U.S. militaries have remained on high alert with North Korea expected to test-launch at least one mid-range ballistic missile in the coming days. The North has stepped up its fiery rhetoric following the latest U.N. sanctions that punished Pyongyang for conducting its third nuclear test in February.
