North Korea threatens to sink US ships


North Korea has declared it is ready to sink a US aircraft carrier on its way to the Korean Peninsula.

US President Donald Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail toward North Korea in response to rising tension over nuclear and missile tests.

‘Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,’ the Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, said in a commentary.

Pyongyang turned its sights on Australia on Saturday for ‘blindly and zealously toeing the US line’ and accused Foreign Minister Julie Bishop of ‘spouting a string of rubbish against the DPRK over its entirely just steps for self-defence’ .
