The Korean People’s Army has warned that it is “carefully examining” plans for a missile attack on the US Pacific territory of Guam.
The North Korean Strategic Commander said: “We are seriously considering an operation plan to carry out the siege of Guam around the strategic ballistic rocket ‘Hwaseong-12’ type.”
The chilling warning comes after US President Donald Trump vowed to unleash ‘fire and fury’ if North Korea threatens the US.
Two US supersonic bombers took off from Guam to take part in a strategic mission with South Korean and Japanese jets last night.
Where is Guam?
Guam is a tiny island in the western Pacific.
The US terrority is home to US military base that hosts a submarine squadron, an airbase and a Coast Guard group.
More than 160,000 people live on Guam, which is also a popular tourist destination famous for tropical beaches.
Guam is a logical target for Kim Jong-un’s regime because it falls within the range of North Korean medium- and long-range missiles.
The island’s tourism website says: “Only on Guam can you find star-sand beaches, crystal clear blue skies and world-famous sunsets.”
