SEOUL - Two US Air Force B-1B bombers have flown over the Korean peninsula in direct response to recent North Korean missile tests, the US Air Force said in a statement on Sunday.
North Korea has said it conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday that proved its ability to strike America's mainland, drawing a sharp warning from US President Donald Trump.
The B-1B flight, conducted on Saturday, was in direct response to the missile test and the previous July 3 launch of the "Hwansong-14" rocket, the US statement said.
