Seoul: North Korea says its new leader, Kim Jong Un, has ordered troops to launch a powerful retaliatory strike against South Korea if provoked.
The official Korean Central News Agency reported on Sunday that Kim issued the order during a visit to front-line military units, including one that shelled South Korea`s Yeonpyeong Island in 2010, killing four people.
