North Korea develops anthrax-loaded missile to hit the US
This year, North Korea has increased its missile and nuclear weapons testing at an unparalleled rate and they have threatened the United States many times.
South Korean Intelligence reports North Korea launched biological weapons experiments involving anthrax.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Kim Jong-un's regime has stepped up their testing one more level with biological weapons experiments using anthrax, according to South Korean intelligence.
North Korea was conducting tests to determine the possibility of "loading anthrax-laden warheads on its intercontinental ballistic missiles," reported Japan's Asahi newspaper. The tests aimed to conclude whether the anthrax bacteria could survive the high temperatures from warheads re-entering from space.
These missiles could potentially hit east of the United States.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "50kg of anthrax be released from an aircraft over an urban population of five million, there would be 250,000 cases of the disease."
The Asahi report claims the U.S. is aware of the North's biological weapon tests.
Despite the recent news, South Korean President Moon Jae-in continues to try to soothe relations with China and North Korea ahead of the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
He has proposed the postponing of military drills with the United States to show peaceful measures, as Pyongyang sees the exercises as preparation for war.
However, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated he was unaware of any plans to "alter longstanding and scheduled and regular military exercises."
North Korea has been hit with increased international sanctions over its growing number of weapons testing this year, but Kim Jong-un does not show any signs of backing down.
