U.S. and South Korean soldiers join forces for river-crossing drill for first time in a decade in the wake of North Korea threats

The United States and South Korean took part in their first large river-crossing drill in a decade today.

The exercise comes ten days after the South accused its neighbour North Korea of firing three short-range guided missiles into its eastern waters.

More than 300 U.S. soldiers from 2nd infantry division and 95 South Korean 6th Engineer Brigade soldiers built floating rafts to transport 14 tanks and 16 armored vehicles across the Imjin River in Yeoncheon.
