North Korea Claims U.S. Tried to Kill Leader

North Korea has accused the US and South Korea of attempting to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un.

The country claims the attempt was made with a “bio-chemical substance.” In a report Friday, North Korean state news agency KCNA claimed a “hideous terrorist group” conspired with the CIA and South Korea’s Intelligence Service (IS) to mount the attack. The report did not offer any evidence other than account laced with fantastical language. Its aim, the report said was to “commit bomb terrorism targeting the supreme leadership” during major events. It also claimed a North Korean citizen was involved in the plot.

No part of the report has been independently verified.

Truth or Lies
The report claimed the plot was “recently uncovered and smashed.” It accused members of the CIA and IS of working with a North Korean citizen to provide money and weapons to carry out “state-sponsored terrorism.”
KCNA laid out the alleged plot in great detail.The country claims the plot was hatched in 2014. Supposedly, South Korean and US intelligence agencies recruited a North Korean working in the timber industry in eastern Russia. Further contacts were made over subsequent years, and the assassination attempt was to have taken place at a military parade.
The KCNA report did not say when the assassination plot was stopped.
