SEOUL (AFP) – North Korea\'s military threatened Sunday to launch the \"severest punishment\" against South Korea for staging massive joint war games with the United States this week.

The North\'s army and people will \"deal a merciless counterblow\" to the allies \"as it had already resolved and declared at home and abroad\", a spokesman for the country\'s army General Staff said in a statement published by state media.

\"The military counteraction of (North Korea) will be the severest punishment no one has ever met in the world,\" he said.

The warning came a day before US and South Korean troops begin the 10-day computerised war games called \"Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG)\".

About 30,000 US soldiers will take part in the exercise, a US military spokesman said, adding an unspecified number of American soldiers based in the United States would join in via computer networks.

Some 56,000 South Korean soldiers will be mobilised for the war games, a defence ministry spokesman said.

In a message posted on a US military website, General Walter Sharp, who heads some 28,500 US troops based in the South, described the exercise as \"one of the largest joint staff directed theatre exercises in the world.\"
