US B-1B bomber in attack drill show of force to North Korea

The US military has flown a B-1B bomber over South Korea as part of a massive joint aerial drill, in a move seen as a warning to the North.

The B-1B Lancer plane simulated bombing a military field.

The drill is taking place a week after Pyongyang fired what it claimed was a new intercontinental ballistic missile which could hit mainland US.

The US has previously deployed bombers as a show of force after North Korean missile or nuclear tests.

South Korea's military said the US bomber took part in the simulation with US and South Korean fighter jets.
