N Korea rhetoric shifts to more threats as it cuts hotline

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – North Korean belligerance has been stepped up again, with new threats against the South and the US. Wednesday 27 March it said it was cutting its hotline with South Korea, effectively ending all military communication, although an aviation hotline remains in place, according to news agency AP. Some weeks ago it reportedly cut another hotline, one supplied by the Red Cross to keep a line open between the two governments.
