‘Guam mis­sile strike plan ready by mid-Au­gust'

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

North Korea says a plan that could see it fire four mis­siles near the US ter­ri­tory of Guam will be ready in a mat­ter of days.

State me­dia said Hwa­song-12 rock­ets would pass over Ja­pan and land in the sea about 30km (17 miles) from Guam, if the plan was ap­proved by Kim Jong-un.

It de­nounced Don­ald Trump’s warn­ings of “fire and fury” and said the US leader was “bereft of rea­son”.

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump warned North Korea it should be “very, very ner­vous” if it does any­thing to the US.

He said the regime would be in trou­ble “like few na­tions have ever been” if they do not “get their act to­gether”.

Sep­a­rately, the Euro­pean Union said it was freez­ing the as­sets of nine more peo­ple and four more en­ti­ties, in­clud­ing North Korea’s For­eign Trade Bank, in line with fresh sanc­tions ap­proved by the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil on Satur­day.
