An unusually aggressive approach to the North by Trump, which has included rhetoric hinting at USA strikes and threatening the destruction of North Korea's leadership, has some South Koreans fearful that war is closer than at any time since the Korean War ended in 1953 in a shaky cease-fire, leaving the Korean Peninsula still technically in a state of war. In August, Pyongyang threatened to shoot intermediate range missiles towards the vicinity of Guam, a target frequently subjected to sabre-rattling from the North.

The documents reportedly include contingency plans for war, drawn up by the US and South Korea, along with details on power plants and military facilities.

It was part of a "regular deployment training" aimed at enhancing the capability of implementing the "extended deterrence" against the North, the JCS said.

The North Korean party anniversary passed without any missile launches or nuclear tests, but officials are wary the North could engage in more provocations at any time, especially with China to begin its all-important Communist Party Congress on October 18.

US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley made clear Monday what a bind the US is in when it comes to solving the challenge of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, stating there are "no risk-free options" but said there is also not an "indefinite amount of time" to solve the crisis.

The bombers took off from the US Pacific territory of Guam on Tuesday night, before entering South Korean airspace and conducting firing exercises over the East Sea and Yellow Sea, South Korea's military said. The aircraft then conducted similar simulated air to ground striking drills off the peninsula's west coast, according to South Korea's Defense Ministry.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said. Rhee said 80 percent of the information hadn't been identified.

North Korea's nuclear weapons program has become the most urgent national security issue during the Trump presidency.

Seoul says North Korea has repeatedly staged cyberattacks on South Korean business and government websites.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump met top officials from his National Security team on Tuesday night for a briefing on ways to respond to threats from North Korea, the White House said.

"Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing".
