North Korea begins testing mounting anthrax onto ICBMs, report says

Democrat recount win could alter power in Virginia's House

On Monday, US President Donald Trump sent his first National Security Strategy report to lawmakers.

Bloomberg reported Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper cited an unidentified person connected to South Korea's intelligence services saying the testing involved making sure the anthrax was capable of surviving the high temperatures generated when the missiles re-enter the Earth's atmosphere. "North Korea is also pursuing chemical and biological weapons which could also be delivered by missile".

"They are also the American politicians and the white supremacists making conceived attempts for state terrorism and racial extinction through overt research and development of the biological weapons in the worldwide-scattered USA laboratories", it said.

Reports by South Korea previously stated the North was capable of producing biological agents such as anthrax and smallpox that could be used as a part of biological warfare.

Nuclear attacks aren't the only thing to worry about from North Korea.

In response, North Korea said it would "take revenge" on the US for saying it is developing biological weapons.

North Korea is reportedly testing using anthrax on its missiles.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has trumpeted his country's nuclear program.

. "But I think we ignore their chemical and biological programs truly at our own peril".

The Hermit Kingdom is beginning experiments to test out if anthrax can endure vast heat and pressure it will have to endure when loaded into an ICBM and launched toward the earth's atmosphere, Japan's Asahi newspaper reported, citing an unidentified person connected to South Korea's intelligence services.
