Daily Kos: Partial evacuation possibly underway in North Korean capital

Kim Jong Un is reported to have ordered the evacuation of over 600,000 people from North Koreaís capital city, Pyongyang.

Experts note that the evacuation will most likely be conducted due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the US.
North Korea has an extensive system of shelters, but itís not clear where the evacuated people are being sent.

Meanwhile, reports that China was cancelling flight service to Pyongyang appears to be incorrect, though some individual flights have been dropped because ticket sales to the North Korean capital are, understandably, low.


Trump has stated that a sixth nuclear test by North Korea, or even the appearance that such a test is about to occur, could result in a preemptive attack by the United States.

The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
