    North Korea accuses US, South Korea of assassination attempt

    North Korea on Friday accused the U.S. and South Korean spy agencies of an unsuccessful assassination attempt on leader Kim Jong Un involving biochemical weapons.
    In a statement carried on state media, North Korea's Ministry of State Security said it will "ferret out and mercilessly destroy" the "terrorists" in the CIA and South Korean intelligence agency responsible for targeting its supreme leadership.
    North Korea frequently lambasts the United States and South Korea, but its accusation Friday was unusual in its detail.
    The ministry said the spy agencies in June 2014 "ideologically corrupted and bribed" a North Korean citizen who was working inRussia to carry out the alleged assassination on Kim after returning home.
    It said South Korean agents gave money and satellite communication equipment to the North Korean to attack Kim during a public event using a biochemical weapon such as a delayed-action radioactive or "nano poisonous" substance.
    The ministry said after a series of contacts and payments, the agents told the North Korean last month that the type of biochemical substance had been decided and would be supplied by the CIA.
    The statement, carried by North Korea's official news agency and read on state TV, didn't describe how the alleged plot was broken up or give the full name of the North Korean suspect, identifying him only by his surname, Kim, and didn't say whether anyone else was in custody.
    Snip...

    This could go either way: Either there is an effort to snuff out the little Trump or they are making this up for propaganda. Either way taking him out would be a hard nut to crack. I'm sure it would be really difficult to get anywhere near the scum.

    I sure wouldn't want to be caught doing this. I'll bet they have very creative ways to get information out of him if it's true,.

    North Korea is trying their propaganda campaign after their joke of a missile launch. And they are only making themselves look even less credible than they were, if that's possible.

    this guy is almost as paranoid as Trump. But, let's be real here. If the CIA wanted Kim Jong Nutjob gone he'd be gone.

    I respectfully disagree with you. Some countries and regions of the world are nearly impossible to breach for something like this, let alone collect intelligence. I don't care who you are or what agency you belong to.

    One of the few times I have been disappointed by the BBC. They gave this big homepage coverage this morning. I would have thought it would fit better into their "In other news" section, a collection of odd and amusing items.

    It's just so hard for me to take anything like this coming from him/them seriously.

    The CIA did *want* to assassinate Castro. Are you saying the CIA didnt want to kill him which is why they failed so many times?

    If I were Kim Jong Un, I'd be far more worried about China.
