A South Korean soldier walks by barricades on the road leading to North Korea's Kaesong joint industrial complex at a military checkpoint in the border city of Paju on August 21, 2015North Korea warned it was prepared to risk “all-out war” as leader Kim Jong-Un put his frontline troops on combat readiness to back up an ultimatum for South Korea to halt propaganda broadcasts across the border by Saturday afternoon. The warning came as military tensions on the divided Korean peninsula soared following a rare exchange of artillery fire on Thursday that put the South Korean army on maximum alert. “Our military and people are prepared to risk an all-out war not just to simply respond or retaliate, but to defend the system our people chose,” North Korea’s foreign ministry said in a statement early Saturday on the official KCNA news agency, according to the South’s Yonhap news agency.
