South Korea and the US remain on high alert for a North Korean missile launch, Reuters reports.
North Korea has stationed as many as five medium-range missiles on its east coast, according to defence assessments made by Washington and Seoul, possibly in readiness for a test launch that would demonstrate its ability to hit US bases on Guam.
Today, officials in Seoul said there were no signs that additional steps had been taken today that would indicate the North had moved closer to a launch.
Through her tears, a North Korean woman told me how she had to escape: risk death while running across the border or die of starvation.
Memories of the Korean war are never far away in South Korea, where residents have grown used to living with the constant threat of war.
North Korea said it will withdraw workers from the Kaesong factory park run jointly with South Korea and suspend all operations there.
