North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-Un has warned that war could break out ‘without notice’ as he called on his military to be combat ready.
The warning came a day after reports that satellite images appeared to show North Korea has started producing fuel rods for its nuclear reactor.
The U.S. and South Korea had been wary of possible threats from the North, where tensions have been high since the execution of Kim’s uncle and mentor.
