The warning was contained in a message sent on Thursday by the secretariat of the National Defense Commission, the North’s highest military body, through a military hotline, the South’s defense ministry said.

In rallies on Tuesday to mark the death anniversary of Kim Jong-Il, South Korean conser-vative groups burned effigies of young North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, his late father and granadfather.

The North said the rallies had in-sulted the “highest dignity” of its leadership, and threatened to take “merciless” retaliatory acts without prior warning, the defense ministry said.
