North Korea warns South – turn off loudspeakers by 5pm on Saturday or we’ll attack

Kim Jong-un has put North Korea on a war footing and threatened “indiscriminate strikes” against the South if it doesn’t agree to halt propaganda broadcasts by Saturday evening at 5pm.

Mr Kim claimed North Korea’s soldiers were in a “quasi-state of war” and ordered them to prepare for battle, according to state news outlet KCNA.
