ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korea's state media on Friday (March 25) released still photographs of its leader Kim Jong Un inspecting military drills which are aimed at South Korea's capital Seoul. In still photographs, aired by the North's state-run television KRT, Kim was seen looking through binoculars to watch the large-scale intensive striking drill of long-range artillery pieces of the Korean People's Army (KPA). KRT said the drill was the North's largest ever exercise of long-range artillery training, with a simulated attack on South Korea's presidential and government offices. Kim ordered his military to be on high alert so that it may mercilessly pound the reactionary ruling machines in Seoul, the cesspool of evils, and advance to accomplish the historic cause of national reunification, once it receives an order for attack, KRT added. KRT did not specify the date or the location of the drills.
