North Korea asks Britain to evacuate embassy
Britain's foreign office confirmed that the British embassy in Pyongyang had received a communication from the North Korean government and said it was "considering next steps", The Independent reported Friday.
Pyongyang regime had responsibilities to protect embassies under international conventions and claimed the latest move was "part of their continuing rhetoric" that the United States poses a threat, a spokesperson said.
North Korea moved two missiles to its east coast and loaded them onto launchers, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
South Korea has also deployed two warships that have missile-defence systems.
