North Korea threatens to destroy South Korean Christmas tree with heavy artillery

The South Korean government has given the go-ahead to a Christian group, allowing them to erect a 20 metre tall Christmas tree-like structure close to the border with the notoriously tempestuous North Korea.

North Korea, a country which has supplanted mainstream religion with its own unique brand of quasi-religious dictatorship, views the building of the Christian ‘tree’ as a ‘provocative display of psychological warfare’ and has threatened to take military action if necessary.

Pyongyang issued warnings that it would dissemble the structure themselves, with the aid of shelling and heavy artillery, should the South ignore their demands to remove the festive tower.

Unfazed, the South Korean Christian group hopes to decorate the tree with sparkly lights and top it with a cross, as per tradition.
