N Korea fear spurs test of nuke sirens

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY KAREN ROCKETT

SIRENS warn­ing of a nu­clear at­tack have been tested in Hawaii for the first time since the end of the Cold War.

They were sounded for a minute on the US Pa­cific is­land par­adise yes­ter­day as ten­sions with North Korea’s despot Kim Jongun con­tinue to worsen.

The 385 alarms will be sounded every month but of­fi­cials will also be check­ing them.

There were claims they were not loud enough as some peo­ple said they were barely au­di­ble along Honolulu’s Waikiki Beach.

A war of words has bro­ken out be­tween US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and Jong-un in the wake of North Korea fir­ing a se­ries of bal­lis­tic mis­siles and car­ry­ing out its sixth nu­clear test.
