SKorea, US to expand joint drill


SEOUL: A joint military exercise between South Korea and the US next month has been amped up in the wake of North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests, the South’s defense minister said Thursday. The annual computer-simulated “Key Resolve” exercise will involve almost triple the number of US troops previously deployed, the Yonhap news agency quoted Han Min-Goo as saying. The US will send 15,000 soldiers, up from 3,700 last year, Han said, and South Korea will also increase its number of participants.
