North Korea threatens South Korea with 'final destruction'

North Korea has threatened South Korea with "final destruction" during a debate at the UN Conference on Disarmament and warned that it could take "second and third steps" after a nuclear test last week.

Jon Yong Ryong, a North Korean diplomat, responded telling the meeting; "as the saying goes a new born puppy knows no fear of a tiger. South Korea's erratic behaviour would only herald its final destruction."
