South Korea, US hold joint naval drill


SEOUL: The United States and South Korea on Thursday kicked off a joint naval exercise involving a US nuclear submarine that is certain to draw a sharp response from Pyongyang. The USS Olympia, a Los Angeles-class submarine with some 120 sailors, arrived in the southern port city of Jinhae last Friday for the three-day drill. The submarine joined South Korean naval vessels in an exercise focused on detecting enemy submarines and surface vessels in waters near the Korean Peninsula.
