North Korea threatens missile strike on Guam

Shortly after President Trump promised that any nuclear threat from North Korea would be met with "fire" and "fury" by the United States, North Korea's state-run news agency KCNA reported that leader Kim Jong Un is "carefully examining" a plan to hit Guam with missiles.

KCNA shared statements from two separate military spokesmen, with one saying the plan will be "put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment" and the other announcing that if the U.S. shows signs of provocation, North Korea will carry out a pre-emptive strike. Guam is a U.S. territory in the Pacific.
