North Korea: Thousands of workers rally against UN sanctions and Trump threats

Thousands of workers rallied against US military threats and newly imposed UN sanctions worth an estimated $1 billion in international trade during a demonstration in Pyongyang on Saturday.

Footage released by state-run news agency KCNA showed young people, workers and trade unionists in their thousands coming out to show their defiance to international measures against Pyongyang.

Tensions between Washington and Pyongyang have steadily heightened over the last week, with US President Donald Trump threatening North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with "fire, fury and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before." The DPRK in turn have stated that they could potentially fire intermediate-range missiles near Guam, a US island territory in Micronesia, by mid-August.
