SEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ridden a white horse up a sacred mountain in his second symbolic visit in less than two months, as his military chief lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump for talking about a possible military option against the North.

Mount Paektu and white horses are symbols associated with the Kim family's dynastic rule. Kim has made previous visits there before making major decisions.
