North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and reduce the U.S. to "ashes and darkness" for leading the latest UN Security Council sanctions imposed on the country. It also bans imports of textiles from North Korea, stripping the country of another key source of hard currency.

The North has threated the USA and Japan before.

"Recognising that North Korea's continued pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and its proliferation links, including the launch of a ballistic missile flying over Japanese territory on August 29 2017, pose grave and real threat to worldwide peace and stability and the global non-proliferation efforts, the two Prime Ministers strongly urged North Korea to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and not to take any further provocative actions, and to fully comply with its worldwide obligations under relevant UNSC resolutions including the newly and unanimously adopted resolution 2375, and other global commitments", it stated.

Battling Overwatch toxicity is slowing the game's development down
Kaplan suggested players take a look at their own behavior and work together with the community to cut down on toxicity in-game. Players do not get any satisfaction out of reporting others because they never know if they actually helped out or not.

A new report has claimed that the detonation of what North Korea claimed was a hydrogen bomb involved a device with an estimated yield of 250 kilotons - making it far more powerful than initially thought, the report said.

"Let's reduce the United States mainland into ashes and darkness".

38 North said this activity suggests the North is preparing those portals for future underground nuclear tests. A variation of that warhead appears to have been used in the most recent test. Evidence suggests that this is a bomb meant for the destruction of an American city should a conflict occur.

European Union should enforce rules to prevent vetoes on tax reforms - Juncker
In a statement, the lender said that the securities services it offers European Union clients are now provided through a subsidiary in the UK.

The most recent satellite images of North Korea's nuclear site taken Friday show a greater number of surface disturbances following Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test than previous tests at Punggye-ri, US analysts say.

The sanctions resolution, adopted in response to the nuclear test this month, was the ninth passed by the Security Council since North Korea's first such test in 2006. That would be much higher than most official estimates, which have varied.

Pyongyang has not mentioned a figure, while South Korea's military predicted it to have been 50 kilotons, or equal to about 50,000 tons of TNT. The United States, South Korea and other governments have yet to confirm that the North tested such a weapon, but the September 3 test, the North's sixth, was by far its most powerful to date.
