North Korea orders artillery to be combat ready, targeting U.S. bases


SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said on Tuesday its strategic rocket and long-range artillery units have been ordered to be combat ready, targeting U.S. military bases on Guam, Hawaii and mainland America after U.S. bombers flew sorties threatening the North.

South Korea's defense ministry said it saw no sign of imminent military action by North Korea.
