SEOUL: An Amer­i­can strate­gic bomber landed in South Korea yes­ter­day in a show of force the US said was aimed at re­mind­ing Py­ongyang of its pow­er­ful mil­i­tary as­sets in the re­gion. The move comes a day after North Korea claimed it had suc­cess­fully tested a new, high-pow­ered rocket en­gine which the South said was de­signed to demon­strate progress to­wards at­tain­ing a long-range mis­sile.
