South Korea is staging what officials describe as its largest military parade in a decade, as its president warns of a "very grave" threat from North Korea.

Cruise missiles and torpedoes were amongst the weapons displayed in the armed forces day parade, reports said.

US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel also attended the event marking the 65th anniversary of South Korea's armed forces.

Around 11,000 soldiers and 120 aircraft were mobilised for the event.
