North Korea considering missile strike on Guam

"The two leaders affirmed that North Korea poses a grave and growing direct threat to the United States, South Korea, and Japan, as well as to most countries around the world", the White House said of the call, in which the pair welcomed the sweeping sanctions.

In a separate statement also released on Wednesday, the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA) condemned recent talk of military action against North Korea from policymakers in the U.S.

Tensions have risen since North Korea carried out two nuclear bomb tests a year ago and two ICBM tests last month.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has warned of an "effective and overwhelming" response against North Korea if it chose to use nuclear weapons but has said any military solution would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale".

The newspaper said that claim was contained in a confidential assessment by America's Defence Intelligence Agency.

North Korea has made no secret of plans to develop a nuclear-tipped missile able to strike the United States and has ignored worldwide calls to halt its nuclear and missile programmes. The North claimed that the whole United States mainland is within its striking range.

Among Kellar's requests were videos of bestiality, fetish behavior involving feces and "kids videos", the complaint said. Kellar , who is in the Santa Clara County jail, is scheduled to appear Tuesday in a federal district court in San Jose .

Clearly North Korea isn't paying any attention to the diplomatic warnings coming from the U.S.

The plan would be reported to the North's Supreme Command soon, the spokesman said, without citing a date.

The UN Security Council on the same day passed a resolution slapping sweeping sanctions on the North over its first test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile. One Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted.

It said the planned strikes would target the major American military bases on Guam - including the Anderson Air Force Base, where U.S. strategic bombers are based.

The US flew two B1B bombers over the Korean peninsula on Monday, according to a spokesman with Pacific Air Forces. Thousands of United States soldiers are stationed in South Korea and Japan.
