China's navy and air force flexed their muscles in live-fire drills close to North Korea amid escalating tension over Kim Jong-un's nuclear test.


The drill included the firing of missiles and according to the ministry aimed to hone the military's abilities to conduct coastal assaults.


It comes as China announced it was prepared to face the consequences of backing a US-drafted UN Security Council resolution on sanctions against North Korea.
