Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has ordered the evacuation of 25% of residents from Pyongyang and said they are to leave immediately. 600,000 people are to be urgently evacuated and it is thought that the evacuation has been prompted by the strained tensions with the USA. The bomb shelters of Pyongyang are not adequate enough to accommodate all of the population of North Korea, so 600,000 individuals; many with criminal records are going to have to leave the city so that others are able to use the bomb shelters.

At the same time, it has been said that a modified Ohio type rocket carrier is going to carry 154 Tomahawk type missiles and this is said to be joining the US Navy which has been deployed close to the Korean Peninsula coast. The missile carrier will arrive at its port of registration by 18 April.

MILITARY TRAINS MOVING THROUGHOUT SHENYANG
The media in China said that doctors along with auxiliary troops were making their way to the North Korean border. In one photo a chain of military trains was seen moving throughout Shenyang, the city is around 200 miles from the border of North Korea. 150,000 soldiers from China are said to have been mobilised ready for the refugees from North Korea, who they fear may flee the country if there is an air strike from the USA. However, China has refuted news that there has been a deployment of 150,000 troops to the DPRK border. Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster said that his commander in chief had ordered deployment of an aircraft carrier strike group from the USA in the region.
He believes that the choice to deploy ships from the US Navy into the Sea of Japan was a reasonable decision when taking into consideration the “model of provocative behaviour” of North Korea.
DPRK MAY CONDUCT MORE MISSILE TESTS
North Korea had condemned the attack on Syria under the orders of Trump, saying that the cruise missile attack on the USA was one of intolerable aggression. Experts believe that tensions may get even higher following 15 April when DPRK might conduct more tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Professor Andrei Lankov, the well-known Orientalist from Russia, has been residing and working in Seoul for years and said that if the USA attacks North Korea, He said Pyongyang would retaliate with a strike that may pose a threat to around 25 million people living in Seoul, due to the city being close to the North and South border.
A Korean war would be inevitable. It has also been said that Japan is getting ready to evacuate citizens from South Korea due to the growing tensions in North Korea.
