N. Korea Steps Up Threats after UN Sanctions

Ad Feedback

North Korea is stepping up its warlike rhetoric after the U.N. Security Council hit the country with tough, new sanctions.

North Korean leaders threatened to cancel a hotline and non-aggression pact with South Korea. They warned the country will retaliate with "crushing strikes" if enemies intrude into its territory.

These latest sanctions are also raising concern about faith-based groups working in the communist nation.

A State Department official said those groups have managed to get some needed assistance past Pyongyang.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also urged the State Department to remember persecuted North Korean Christians as it deals with the communist regime's nuclear threat.
