Large joint drills

SEOUL - Large joint drills by the US and South Korean militaries and US threats of a preemptive war against Pyongyang have made outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula "an established fact", a spokesperson for the North's foreign ministry said.

"The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?" the spokesperson said late on Wednesday in a statement carried by its official KCNA news agency.

IS rebuilds

WASHINGTON- The collapse of Islamic State's self-proclaimed caliphate has not diminished the militant group's ability to inspire attacks on Western targets via the internet, US national security officials told senators on Wednesday.

The Sunni Muslim extremist group has been building its external operations over the past two years and has claimed or been linked to at least 20 attacks against Western interests since January, said Lora Shiao, acting director of intelligence at the National Counterterrorism Centre.

Kill plot accused

LONDON - A 20-year-old man appeared in court on Wednesday accused of plotting to kill British Prime Minister Theresa May by first detonating an explosive device to get into her Downing Street office.

Naa'imur Rahman, of north London, has been charged with preparing to commit acts of terrorism. He was remanded in custody after a brief appearance at Westminster Magistrates Court.
