SEOUL - The United States deployed a B-52 bomber on a low-level flight over its ally South Korea on Sunday, in a show of force following North Korea's nuclear test on Wednesday.

The B-52, based in Guam, was joined by two fighter planes, one American and one South Korean, before returning to Guam, the US military said in a statement.

"The flight today demonstrates the strength and capabilities of the alliance," said Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, who heads the US forces based in South Korea.
