N. Korean army “carefully examining” operation plan for attack on Guam: KPA

Separate DPRK army statement says military action by U.S. will be met with "just all-out war"

North Korea's Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) is examining an operational plan for a  medium-to-long-range ballistic missile attack on the island of Guam, a spokesperson for the organization said in a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Wednesday.

The plan, the details of which were reportedly outlined yesterday, is in response to the U.S.'s test launch last Wednesday of the Minuteman-3 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base and of the recent arrival of six B-1B Lancers at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
