North Korea says 3.5mn volunteers 'ready to retaliate against US'
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants world recognition for his regime and the USA needs to stop backing him into a corner. Obama also said that US forces were now reanalyzing the strategic positioning of America's missile defense systems.


The official said due to heavy firing and mortar shelling by Pakistani troops, the residents living close to the LoC in Balakote sector could not take refuge in underground bunkers.

Despite repeated calls for restraint and call to adhere to the ceasefire understanding of 2003 for maintaining peace and tranquillity, Pakistan forces have carried out 301 incidents of unprovoked ceasefire violations along the LoC this year, the Ministry of External Affairs said.

The death toll of soldiers in July was higher than the casualties suffered by security forces in Pakistani troops firing and shelling along the LoC in the State a year ago.
