North Korea missile could kill Kim Jong-un in just 15 MINUTES | World | News

North Korea is at the mercy of Seoul after South Korea carried out a missile test that could potentially take out Kim Jong-un.

Seoul stepped up its ability to fight back against North Korea during its first live fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile today.

And South Korea’s potentially deadly missile is equipped with stealth characteristics that will allow it to avoid radar detection as it speeds towards its targets.

Seoul’s Defense Ministry chiefs said the missile, manufactured by Germany’s Taurus Systems, has a maximum range of 500 kilometers (310 miles).

The Taurus systems can bomb key nuclear sites in North Korea in just 15 minutes according to defence bosses.

The North said its latest nuclear test was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for its developmental intercontinental ballistic missiles that were flight tested twice in July. 

North Korea is also developing solid-fuel missiles that could be fired from land mobile launchers or submarines. 

It flew a powerful new midrange missile over northern Japan last month while declaring more missile tests targeting the Pacific Ocean.

Meanwhile, South Korea said it found a small amount of radioactivity in air samples collected days after the North’s test.

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission said the discovery of the xenon-133 isotope is linked to the recent test but it couldn’t verify exactly what kind of bomb…
