Seoul: North Korea says it will attack South Korean loudspeakers and other propaganda facilities along its border, warning it can even turn Seoul into a "sea of flame."

The General Staff of the Korean People`s Army made the threat on Saturday in a declaration carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

It says the North would launch an all-out military strike to blow up any propaganda facilities along its border, and that its retaliation would be "a merciless strike foreseeing even the turn of Seoul ... into a sea of flame."
Tensions have risen since Seoul blamed the North last month for the sinking of a navy ship that killed 46 sailors. North Korea denies involvement.
