North Korea Threatens Nuclear Attack on U.S.


North Korea on Thursday threatened the United States with a preemptive nuclear strike. The increased rhetoric comes as the UN Security Council is considering new sanctions against the reclusive state. North Korea has accused the United States of using military drills in South Korea as a launch pad for a nuclear war - and has scrapped the armistice that ended hostilities in 1953. A newsreader on North Korea's state broadcaster KRT read out the foreign ministry statement.
