#AceWorldNews – SEOUL – March 27 – Nearly 15,000 South Korean and around 10,000 US troops kicked off a 12-day amphibious landing drill code-named Ssang Yong (Twin Dragons), on Thursday, AFP reported.

The exercises, which are the largest for two decades, come a day after North Korea launched two mid-range ballistic missiles.

The exercise will be conducted on the South’s south-eastern coast and will last until April 7.

“The scale of this year’s Ssang Yong is greater than any others in the past,” a US military spokesman said.
