The South Korean military established a "decapitation" brigade Friday created to eliminate North Korea's leadership in case of an emergency on the peninsula, defense ministry officials revealed.

His comments came three days after North Korea carried out its first ballistic missile test in two months, in defiance of United Nations resolutions.

Meanwhile, South Korean media showed six US Air Force F-22 Raptors, Washington's top-of-the-line stealth fighters, arriving in South Korea on Saturday to participate in the Vigilant Ace 18 air combat exercise, an annual US-South Korea drill the US Air Force says is created to boost the "combat effectiveness" of the alliance.

A parliamentary committee on defense on Saturday approved a resolution to condemn North Korea's latest long-range missile test and its violation of an armistice agreement that ended the 1950-53 Korean War.

North Korea has been eligible for even harsher sanctions since US President Donald Trump declared it a designated state sponsor of terrorism last month, and White House National Security Advisor H.R McMaster has admitted the newspaper editorial's warning of war was credible.

In addition, Frasina's parents discovered sexual messages on Snapchat between her and Rodriguez after her disappearance. Rodriguez and the teen had been around each other "at sports events, but they've never been alone at all", Smith said.

Tensions have heated up in recent months over the north's continued development of its nuclear and missile programme, in spite of global condemnation and worldwide sanctions.

North Korea has repeatedly rejected accusations of human rights abuses and blames sanctions for a dire humanitarian situation.

The war games follow reports on Saturday of the establishment by South Korea's military of a "decapitation unit" tasked with neutralising the North's leadership - including Kim Jong-un - and destroying nuclear and missile facilities if war breaks out.

"Our initial analysis of the photos showed that there were clear differences between the Hwasong-15 and Hwasong-14 in terms of the looks of the warhead, the joint of the first and second stages of the missile, and overall size", Roh told a briefing on Thursday.

McMaster said the possibility of war with the North was "increasing every day".

Netanyahu: Israel will not allow Iran to establish military presence in Syria
This isn't entirely unusual within Israel, as the military censors often compel the media not to report stories. SANA says the missile attack occurred shortly after midnight on Friday and caused material damage.

North Korea, meanwhile, has been on a tear, undeterred by global pressure.

It is likely the ballistic missile, fired higher than any previous North Korean missile, broke up as it re-entered Earth's atmosphere, the official said. "However, the quake could have been caused by geological changes created from the recent nuclear explosion", said an agency official who asked not to be named.

He pushed China to do more, including cutting off North Korean oil imports. "The combination of those two things means it really is a new, more capable missile".
