The US and South Korea jointly warn North Korea that use of any kind of nuclear weapon against Seoul or other regional allies would result in the end of Kim Jong Un’s regime, as Pyongyang continues to rattle the peninsula with escalating missile tests.

North Korea has launched more than two dozen missiles over the last two days in response to US-South Korean military exercises that began Monday. The launches have sent South Koreans scrambling for shelter and further frayed the nerves of a population already mourning the loss of more than 150 people at a horrific Halloween crowd crush.
