North Korea claims US 'biochemical' plot to kill Kim Jong Un

The North Korean commentary said it's China that had crossed"the red line

KCNA, which often carries threats against the USA, gave lengthy details about the alleged plot but said it could never be accomplished.

"This bill gives the administration a powerful tool to cut off North Korea's funding by going after those who do business with the regime".

But they come at a time when tensions are rising.

Kim's visit to the military units reported on Friday demonstrated a similar motive: signaling a readiness to fight, while steering clear of weapons tests condemned as "very bad" by US President Donald Trump, Yonhap reported.

American Health Care Act - House Passes ACA Replacement Bill
Republicans must prove they are ready to lead and fix America's broken health care system because ObamaCare is in a death spiral. This is a good start and a major step forward in the effort to rid the American people of the disaster known as ObamaCare.

During the interview, Trump also spoke of the man at the center stage of all this, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

They were planning to use "biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance" to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

The hermit nation claimed that a North Korean citizen named "Kim" was bribed by the Central Intelligence Agency to carry out the assassination attempt on April 16, known as the Day of the Sun, the Telegraph reported. It refers to another of $50,000 but it is unclear if this is additional.

It lists several alleged payments made to him, amounting in total to almost $300,000, and says on his return to Pyongyang he was instructed to provide detailed information about a frequently used event ground and to assess possible methods of attack. The statement said Kim had received a total payment of about US$740,000 and was given satellite transceivers and other materials and equipment. Allegedly, Kim had worked as a lumberjack in Russia's Khabarovsk region.

The play was reviewed because Ryan Kesler was in the crease, but the goal stood as Darnell Nurse was holding him there. He has at least 3.5 DraftKings points in four straight, with 10 of his 13 SOG this round coming in the past two games.

Earlier this year, Kim's exiled half-brother was assassinated at a Malaysian airport in a similar fashion to that described by the security ministry.

South Korea and Malaysia say it was an assassination carried out by the North.

"The cumulative actions of the DPRK (North Korea) since their last nuclear test compel us to look at a range of measures that would apply pressure", said a spokesman for the U.S. Permanent Mission to the United Nations on Tuesday.

The accusation comes as tensions between Pyongyang and the administration of President Donald Trump escalates over U.S. military build-up on the Korean Peninsula and the North's carrying out several nuclear and missile tests.

North Korea: CIA tried to assassinate Kim
Trump has repeatedly demanded that China stop North Korea from conducting any further missile or nuclear tests . Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang addressed the comments at a regular briefing on May 4.

"He said that the KPA elite artillery group defending the southwest front should keep highly alert to break the backbone of the enemy once ordered", a Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) report claimed, following the activation of the American Thaad missile defence system and intensified joint military drills.
