CIA Chief: Not Surprising If N. Korea Tests Another Missile

U.S. spooks confirmed Kim Jong-un can now miniaturise nuclear warheads for use on his ICBMs, and the island is well within range of his missiles.

It said there had recently been an evacuation drill to deal with a "ballistic rocket threat" from someone in Hawaii in response to President Donald Trump's vows that the USA would "not rule out a war".

KCNA said: "The "sanctions resolution" is no more than the last-ditch efforts of those frightened by the might of (North Korea)".

It follows the announcement that North Korea had miniaturised a nuclear warhead capable of reaching the mainland US.

Guam is a target because of its naval base and air force base, from which two B-1B supersonic bombers were deployed close to the Korean peninsula on Tuesday.

Referring to Kim, President Trump added: "If he utters one threat ... or if he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast".

President Trump has also insisted that "nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

North Koreans, including students, workers and retired soldiers, have requested to join or reenlist in the military in light of the governments earlier vows to retaliate against the United States, after the UN Security Council approved new sanctions against Pyongyang, the North Koreas Workers Party newspaper Rodong Sinmun reported, as quoted by Yonhap news agency.

Donald Trump has threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" as well as tweeting that the U.S. was "locked and loaded".

"All the people are rising up across the country to retaliate against the U.S. thousands of times", said a report published by the North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper the RT cited on Saturday.

Tensions over North Korea escalated in July, when Pyongyang twice successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of targeting the United States mainland.
