North Korea warned the United States to end its "military hysteria" on Saturday or face retaliation as a US aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region amid fears the North may conduct a sixth nuclear weapons test.

Hundreds of military trucks carrying cheering and singing people headed for a parade marking the 105th anniversary of the birth of the country's founding father, celebrations that coincide with the latest threat by the reclusive state against the United States and President Donald Trump.

Concern has grown since the US Navy fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield last week in response to a deadly gas attack. That raised questions about Trump's plans for North Korea, which has conducted missile and nuclear tests in defiance of UN and unilateral sanctions.
