US to dispatch bomber to South Korea on Tuesday

SEOUL: The United States will conduct a bomber flight over South Korea on Tuesday, an official at US Forces in Korea said, a show of force against North Korea after the reclusive state recently carried out its fifth nuclear test.

The official however declined to name the bomber's type or the fleet's size would be.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that bad weather had delayed a planned US military B-1B bomber flight to the Korean peninsula that had been scheduled for Monday.
