Alarm sirens have been sounding out in Pyongyang as tensions mount between North Korea and the US, which may lead to World War Three. A Russian newspaper has said that North Korean ordered an evacuation of more than 600,000 residents, which was a quarter of the city, as fears are growing over a nuclear strike.

The media said that families had been torn apart thanks to the evacuation while leader Kim Jong-Un is set to set off a war with US President Donald Trump, following many months of the build-up of troops along with testing of nuclear weapons.
According to sources Pyongyang alarms went off due to mass evacuation of 600,000+ Pyongyang residents.
Meanwhile, China has warned that conflict could break out “at any moment” over North Korea amid fears it is preparing to launch a sixth nuclear test or more missiles in defiance of UN sanctions and stark warnings from the US.
China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said it was necessary to prevent the situation on the Korean peninsula from going down “an irreversible route”. Some air strikes have been carried out in North Korea in front of the leader, along with reports that North Korea has plans for testing a nuclear missile this weekend.
