U.S. bombers, Japanese fighter jets conduct drill over Korean Peninsula

The United States, meanwhile, staged another show of force meant to deter any North Korean aggression by flying two B-1B supersonic bombers Tuesday night from an air base in the USA territory of Guam to the South for drills with South Korean fighter jets.

Rhee, who belongs to the ruling Democratic Party and sits on the Defense Committee, told CNN on Tuesday that he received information about the alleged hacking from the Defense Ministry.

North Korean hackers stole strategic plans drawn up by South Korea and the United States on how they would respond to an attack by the rogue regime as well as details of a "decapitation" plan to assassinate President Kim Jong Un, according to a report on Tuesday.

Late last month the US flew B-1Bs over global waters close to North Korea's east coast.

Lee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, but the military has yet to identify 80 percent of the documents that were compromised.

TV Reporter Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Forcing Her to Watch Him Masturbate
Even Bloom's mother, the prominent attorney Gloria Allred, implicitly criticized Bloom for working with Weinstein. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say.

The information, that included wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea, was from the country's defence ministry, according to Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker.

These plans had likely not been classified properly but defence ministry officials told Rhee the hacked documents were not of top importance, he said. North Korea routinely denies responsibility. In a speech at the United Nations in September, the US President accused the North Korean leader Kim of being "on a suicide mission" - while Kim responded by vowing to "tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire".

However, Trump said he still had confidence in the secretary of state.

"There is an urgent need for the military to change and update parts that were stolen by North Korea", Lee said.

Trump has engaged in an escalating war of words with North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un, trading insults amid rising tensions between the two nuclear-armed rivals. North Korea needs time and proof to believe that abandoning its nuclear programme will contribute to its own political and economic advantage.

"We strongly urge North Korea and the U.S. to stop their bellicose posturing and seriously think about a peaceful solution", it said.
