    A US aircraft carrier completed a week of massive joint naval exercises with warships from South Korea.

    North Korea claimed the exercises were a rehearsal for war and threatened to sink the USS Ronald Reagan, the carrier leading the US naval task force.

    The drills off the Korean Peninsula come before US President Donald Trump travels to Asia to meet allies in the region.

    Al Jazeera's Craig Leeson has been on board in the port of Busan.
