The South Korean navy moves into position for a seven-day military exercise. Two destroyers and a number of patrol ships mobilized as the drill began on Wednesday (February 6). Authorities say the exercise aims to test the detection of ballistic missiles and close-range weapons systems. The drill comes just days after a joint naval exercise with the U.S., in an apparent show of force against North Korea. Tension on the Korean peninsular is running high amid fears the North could conduct a third nuclear test.
