North Korea held a loud but peaceful mass rally inside the Demilitarized Zone Saturday -- the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Koreas from Japanese colonial rule -- replete with an all-woman brass band, flag-waving and fist-pumping, as South Korean and U.S. soldiers stood watch just meters (yards) away on their side of the truce village of Panmunjom.North and South Korea failed to agree on any joint celebration of the landmark anniversary of the liberation of their peninsula from Japan.While there were no incidents during the rally in the DMZ, North Korea has threatened to attack South Korean loudspeakers that are broadcasting anti-Pyongyang propaganda messages across their shared border, the world's most heavily armed.
