Tens of thousands of North Koreans have come out in a show of defiance following US President Donald Trump’s threats of ’fire and fury’.
The North Koreans gathered for a massive rally at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang on Wednesday with photos showing citizens holding propaganda placards and waving their fists in the air.
Footage shows thousands of North Korean workers dressed in white shirts as they angrily marched through the square brandishing flags.
The elite class, who were dressed in black, applauded the workers as they rallied.
It came after a strict round of sanctions were passed by the United Nations security council over the weekend.
North Korea also officially dismissed Trump’s threats on Wednesday, declaring the American leader ’bereft of reason’ and warning ominously that ’only absolute force can work on him’.
In a statement carried by state media, General Kim Rak Gyom, who heads North Korea’s rocket command, also said his country was ’about to take’ military action near the US Pacific territory of Guam.
He said the North would finalize a plan by mid-August to fire four mid-range missiles hitting waters 19 to 25 miles away from the island.
