North Korea slams the US intelligence service for planning to kill the supreme leader Kim Jong-un with “biocides,” reports BBC.
The North Korean press agency, KCNA, claims that a group would have infiltrated the country and tried to use radioactive substances with poisonous nanoparticles in the alleged plot and said the authorities would find and “mercilessly destroy ” the terrorists.
Kim Jong-un was allegedly the target of the attack at a military parade. It is claimed that South Korean and US intelligence approached and bribed a corrupt North Korean official, referred to as “Kim”, while he worked for a timber company in Russia. After being paid, “Kim” was given a “satellite transmitter-receiver” before returning to Pyongyang where he was supposed to receive detailed instructions about various opportunities to complete the attack.
The Agency also specified that the effects of the biochemicals would be visible within 6 to 12 months. The CIA declined to comment and South Korea has issued no statement so far.
