North Korea leader 'briefed' on Guam missile plan.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been briefed on a plan to fire missiles towards the US Pacific territory of Guam, state media says. But the report said he would watch US actions before making a decision on "the enveloping fire at Guam". Last week, the North said a plan was being drawn up to fire four missiles into the sea off Guam, where US bombers are based. It came amid a sharp rise in rhetoric between the US and North Korea. The report on state news agency KCNA said Kim Jong-un "examined the plan for a long time" and discussed it with senior military officials.
