US submarine arrives in South Korea as tensions rise

A US submarine has arrived in South Korea, amid worries of another North Korean missile or nuclear test.

It is a nuclear-powered submarine carrying 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles and 60 special operations troops and mini-subs, reported the South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo.

The missile-armed USS Michigan is set to join an incoming group of warships led by aircraft carrier Carl Vinson.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview earlier this month, “We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you.”
North Korea is celebrating its army’s 85th founding anniversary on Tuesday and it is marking the event with a large-scale firing drill.

Tensions have risen in the area in recent weeks, with the US and North Korea exchanging heated rhetoric.
