US warns North Korea to avoid actions of destruction.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis has told North Korea to avoid actions that could usher in the "end of its regime and the destruction of its people". The Pentagon chief also said Pyongyang would be "grossly overmatched" in a war against the US and its allies. His stark warning comes a day after President Donald Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury". US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought to assure Americans there was no imminent threat.(BBC)
