North Korea releases video threatening strike on DC, if provoked

North Korea released a disturbing video Saturday threatening a nuclear strike on Washington.

The four-minute long video shows burning American flags, text and, finally, a computer-generated image showing a nuclear missile striking the National Mall.

"If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a preemptive nuclear strike," the video says in Korean, according to the New York Times.

This is not the first time North Korea has threatened a U.S. city-- in 2013, the country released a similar video showing Manhattan being bombed and another showing President Obama in flames.
