North Korea has warned the situation on its divided peninsula is so alarming that a nuclear war may break out at any moment.

The warning came just hours after one of its fighter jets briefly crossed into South Korea, but retreated after being confronted by two southern jets.

The provocation prompted military commanders in the South Korean capital Seoul to put an anti-aircraft missile unit into battle position.
