Probably American or South Korean special forces blowing up something after infiltrating into North Korea.

America has two converted Trident Submarines in the same Yellow Sea area that carry some 50 Special Op forces each to sneak in and drop them off to sabotage and commit various covert operations.

All the autocratic governments of the world, no matter how big and powerful they be, are built up on the blood and marrow of millions of innocents. At any cost, these evil structures should be pulverised. It is the duty of U.N to help the people of these nations(china,n.korea,venezuela etc.)establishing a democratic government. In 21st century, we should never allow any tyrant to slaughter freedom and peace at the cost of development.
