On the eve of war?

PAJU, South Korea (KGUN9 TV/AP) - There's another threat from North Korea as tensions escalate on the peninsula.
The North is now telling foreign companies and tourists to flee South Korea, saying the two Koreas are on the verge of a nuclear war.
Analysts say that's extremely unlikely. Today's warning from the North's Korean Asia-Pacific Peace Committee is similar to past threats that analysts call an attempt to raise anxiety in foreign capitals.
The warning comes a day after the North closed a massive industrial park that employs thousands of South Koreans.
Last week, North Korea told foreign diplomats based in Pyongyang that it will not be able to guarantee their safety as of Wednesday.
