Trump Discusses 'Range of Options' to Respond to North Korean Aggression

UK draws up battle plan in case of North Korea war

And North Korea has denied this, and accused South Korea of "fabricating" the claims.

If confirmed, such a hack would be a major blow for South Korea at a time when its relations with North Korea are at a low point.

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un exchanged heated rhetoric in recent weeks. The South Korean defence ministry has so far refused to comment on the breach, which reportedly dates back to last September.

North Korea's leadership recently told Russian lawmakers that it possesses a ballistic missile with a range of 3,000 kilometers that will be able to reach USA territory after modernization, the Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday.

Rep. Lee Cheol-hee, a lawmaker for the ruling Democratic Party who sits on the National Defense Committee, said defense sources told him that North Korean hackers previous year stole the classified U.S.

The two US Air Force B-1B bombers were joined by two F-15K fighters from the South Korean military after leaving their base in Guam, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement on Wednesday.

The sheriff said, "We believe he made a decision to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan he carried out". Paddock worked for a time as an Internal Revenue Service agent, then began to invest in real estate, CNN reported.

Late last month, the United States flew B-1Bs over worldwide waters close to the North's east coast.

Democratic Party representative Rhee Cheol-hee said in radio appearances yesterday that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken from the Defense Integrated Data Center in September previous year, citing information from unnamed South Korean defence officials. The aircraft then conducted similar simulated air to ground striking drills off the peninsula's west coast, according to South Korea's Defense Ministry. Given that set of circumstances, the Kim regime would likely chose to use its nuclear weapons.

North Korea expert, Lim Eul-chul, said: "It may sound insane to outsiders to fire missiles from a place he wants to develop economically, but that's how Kim runs his country".

Rhee Cheol-hee, a member of the ruling Democratic Party who also sits on a defense panel, told the media outlet that about 80 percent what the classified documents contained have yet to be identified, but they included contingency plans for South Korea's special forces, reports to allied commanders and information on key military installations and power plants in the South.

Seoul says North Korea has repeatedly staged cyberattacks on South Korean business and government websites. More recently, Seoul accused North Korea of having hacked, stolen and leaked sensitive military secrets and Seoul-Washington war plans.
