North Korea alleges 'CIA tried to assassinate Kim Jong

Democratic Party representative Lee Cheol-hee reportedly cited unidentified defence officials as saying the hackers stole the plans a year ago.

This photo from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un attending the Second Plenum of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) in Pyongyang. Clinton had drawn up a plan to strike a nuclear reactor in Yongbyon, but Carter got North Korea to put its nuclear program on hold.

Israel considers Jerusalem to be its capital and has long urged the move its embassy from Tel Aviv to the ancient city. Netanyahu's hard-liner base opposes such a move, citing religious, security or nationalistic grounds.

In Seoul, Rhee Cheol-hee, a lawmaker in the ruling Democratic Party and a member of the parliamentary national defense committee, said North Korean hackers broke into the Defense Integrated Data Center in September a year ago to steal secret files, including American and South Korean "operational plans" for wartime action. He added his country's nuclear ambitions have provided the foundations for strong economic development, despite sanctions imposed by the "US imperialists and their vassal forces" to force North Korea into abandoning its weapons programme.

The allegation comes at a time when Washington and Pyongyang are engaged in a high-pitched war of words about the Korean peninsula.

Mr Kim responded with a rare statement, vowing to "tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire".
