North Korea says it is considering missile strikes near the US territory of Guam, just hours after President Donald Trump threatened Pyongyang with "fire and fury".
The North's official news agency said it was mulling a plan to fire medium‑to‑long‑range rockets around Guam, where US strategic bombers are based.
The statement marks a sharp rise in rhetoric between the two countries.
The UN recently approved further economic sanctions against the country.
President Trump's comments followed a media report that claimed North Korea had made a nuclear warhead small enough to fit inside its missiles.
