SEOUL, Nov. 26 (Yonhap) -- North Korea said Friday it is "ready to annihilate" South Korea's stronghold if its sovereignty is violated even a bit, raising already high tension after the two countries exchanged artillery barrages earlier this week.
"We will show a firm and merciless example to whichever provoker encroaches on our dignity and sovereignty," the North's Committee for Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in a statement released by the official Korean Central News Agency.

As much fun as it would be to watch the gooks kill each other, I'm still hoping for a Eastern-Europe style revolution in North Korea.
As a sex tourist, I think the opportunities there will be AMAZING. Back in the early 90s, we could get full service from beautiful Czech supermodels for $40. If North Korea falls, it will be a paradise of cheap oriental pussy.
TOKYO (Reuters) – The Japanese coast guard has spotted two Chinese vessels attempting on Sunday to enter waters near islands in the East China Sea that are disputed by the two countries, Kyodo News reported.
Two Chinese fishing patrol ships were sighted around 7:45 a.m. on Sunday (6:45 p.m. EST on Saturday) repeatedly trying to enter waters 44 kilometers off a group of islands known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, Kyodo reported, citing the Japanese coast guard.
Relations between Asia's two biggest economies soured in September after Japan detained a Chinese skipper whose fishing boat collided with Japanese patrol vessels off the disputed islands, which are near potentially rich maritime gas reserves. He was later released.

Former Miss Universe Alicia Machado closed her Twitter account after backlash arose when she confused the Koreas with China in a tweet.
The winner of the 1996 pageant, concerned about North Korea's artillery attack on a South Korean island, had tweeted on Tuesday, "Tonight I want to ask you to join me in a prayer for peace, that these attacks between the Chinas do not make our situation worse."
A flurry of insulting posts followed Machado's mistake, prompting her to call it a day on Twitter.
