North Korea Says CIA Tried to Assassinate Kim Jong-un With Chemical Weapon

North Korea has claimed the US tried to assassinate its Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un, earlier this year. 

The state-run Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) claimed the CIA attempted to use a chemical or biological poison to take out the dictator.

The alleged attempt shows the US is the “main culprit behind terrorism”, it said

The news agency, which is seen as the propaganda wing of the country’s ruling Workers’ Party, said: “In May this year, a group of heinous terrorists who infiltrated our country on the orders of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the US and the South Korean puppet Intelligence Service with the purpose of carrying out state-sponsored terrorism against our supreme headquarters using biological and chemical substance were caught and exposed.

“This palpably shows the true nature of the US as the main culprit behind terrorism.”

KCNA also claimed the US “changes its colours” like a “chameleon” in order to justify overthrowing governments in other countries.
