SEOUL: North Korea is accusing U.S. soldiers of trying to provoke its frontline troops with “disgusting” acts and encouraging South Korean soldiers to aim their guns at the North.

A North Korean military statement Friday warned U.S. soldiers to stop what it called “hooliganism” at an inter-Korean border village or they’ll meet a dog’s death any time and any place.”

The statement said U.S. troops pointed their fingers at North Korean soldiers and made strange noises and unspecified “disgusting” facial expressions.

North Korea occasionally accuses South Korean and U.S. troops of trying to provoke its border troops.

The U.S. and South Korean militaries had no immediate response.

The latest accusation came a day after South Korean and U.S. officials said two suspected medium-range missiles launches by North Korea ended in failure.
