The landing operation drill, which will be held on Friday is a part of the two countries' annual military training called Foal Eagle which began on March 1 and runs untill April 30. Tension has been fuelled by North Korean anger over the imposition of U.N. sanctions after its last nuclear arms test in February, creating one of the worst periods of stress on the peninsula since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

US President Barack Obama Monday heaped pressure on Congress for action "soon" on curbing gun violence. Obama made a pragmatic case for legislation on the contentious issue, arguing that just because political leaders could not save every life, they should at least try to save some victims of rampant gun crime.
