North Korea blames U.S. of leading 170 spy flights in February

North Korea accused the United States on Tuesday of conducting more than 170 spy flights against the communist state in February. American aircraft, including U-2s, RC-135s and EP-3s, conducted surveillance on "strategic targets" and "key military targets" in North Korea from skies over the South, the North's official Korean Central News Agency reported, citing unidentified military sources.

North Korea releases tallies of alleged U.S. spy flights every month. The U.S. military doesn't comment, although it acknowledges monitoring North Korean military activity. Some 29,500 U.S. troops are based in South Korea , which remains technically at war with the North since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a cease-fire, not a peace treaty, reports the AP.
