Pyongyang—North Koreans walk past a screen broadcasting propaganda footage on August 21, with text that reads: "Our supreme leader is the heart of 10 million." North Korea declared a "quasi state of war," following an exchange of fire on August 20 between North and South Korea in response to anti-Pyongyang broadcasts by Seoul. There were no casualties in the exchange, but the United States has urged North Korea to cease any "provocative" actions. Though it considered the broadcasts to be a declaration of war, in a letter Pyongyang expressed a willingness to resolve the matter. slideshow
