North Korea Accuses South and U.S. of Plotting to Kill Kim Jong-un

The New York Times ------- In a region already tense over nuclear threats, North Korea accused the South Korean and American intelligence agencies on Friday of plotting to assassinate its leader, Kim Jong-un, and it warned of an unspecified counterattack. North Korea recently uncovered a “hideous terrorists’ group” that the National Intelligence Service of South Korea, working with the C.I.A., had sent into the North on a secret mission to kill Mr. Kim with biochemical agents, said a spokesman for the North’s Ministry of State Security. In a statement carried by the North’s official news agency, KCNA, the unidentified spokesman said the National Intelligence Service had hired a North Korean logger working in Khabarovsk, in the Russian Far East, in 2014 to prepare for “state-sponsored terrorism.” Officers at the National Intelligence Service were said to have trained the man, providing him with $20,000 and a satellite transmitter-receiver. They then infiltrated the “human scum” into North Korea, giving him instructions last year on how to assassinate Mr. Kim, the spokesman said.
