Seoul: The United States will conduct a bomber flight over South Korea on Tuesday, an official at US Forces in Korea said, a show of force against North Korea after the reclusive state recently carried out its fifth nuclear test.

The official however declined to name the bomber`s type or the fleet`s size would be.

South Korea`s Yonhap News Agency reported that bad weather had delayed a planned US military B-1B bomber flight to the Korean peninsula that had been scheduled for Monday.
