Tensions between North Korea and the United States have been rising dramatically over the last week. This weekend, it appears these tensions reached a boiling point.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has just evacuated 25 percent of Pyongyang residents, ordering to leave the capitol city immediately.
The Gateway Pundit reported that 600,000 people have been told that they should be urgently evacuated. Experts say the evacuations are taking place almost certainly due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the US.
Pyongyang’s bomb shelters are reportedly not able to hold the entire city’s population, so a quarter of the inhabitants have been told to leave. Most of the 600,000 have criminal records.
This comes as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea continue to rise. President Donald Trump has said that if North Korea moves forwards with their next nuclear test on Saturday, he will launch missiles at them. Kim Jong Un, in turn, has refused to back down.
