North Korea 'building ballistic missile submarine'

South Korean doctor Lee Cook-jong told reporters that an 11-inch worm was the longest parasite removed from the soldier's intestines, the Guardian and the BBC reported.

North Korean soldiers are then believed to have fired around 40 rounds in a bid to stop him.

Singapore has suspended trade relations with North Korea, the latest of Pyongyang's major trade partners to cut commercial ties under toughening United Nations sanctions over its weapons program, a customs notice obtained on Thursday showed.

The North Korean defector, who hasn't been identified, was a soldier who made a desperate dash for freedom Monday at the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea. The problem is common among defectors, the professor said, but may not be reflective of the North Korean population.

Doctors discovered an "enormous number" of parasitic worms slithering inside the body of a man who defected from North Korea this week, the ghastly find illustrating the food and hygiene problems rampant inside the guarded walls of the Hermit Kingdom.

South Korea's Lee also added that it could have "a very significant meaning considering the current situation".

"The paper said that several officials confirmed that the disruption efforts include another, more sophisticated attempt at the kind of cyber and electronic strikes that former President Barack Obama ordered in 2014 when he intensified his efforts to cripple North Korea's missile testing".

Three U.S. aircraft carriers also participated in separate exercises Sunday with Japan's largest warship.Tokyo dispatched one of its two large helicopter carriers and two escorts to participate in the drills in the Sea of Japan and East China Sea.

In 2014, Kim Jong-un personally urged farmers to use human faeces, along with animal waste and organic compost, to fertilise their fields. "Vegetables grown in it are considered more delicious than others", Lee said.

Imported corn, which is less preferred but cheaper to obtain than rice, has tended to increase in years when North Koreans are more anxious about their seasonal harvests.

Since the 1990s, when government rations failed to prevent a starvation hitting the country, North Koreans have gradually turned to markets and other private means to feed themselves. A study from 2009 said pre-school children in the North were up to 13cm shorter and up to 7kg lighter than those brought up in the South.

One-quarter of North Korean children aged between six months and five years who attend nurseries the WFP supports suffer from chronic malnutrition, it said.

The WFP told Reuters in a statement last month that, "The main issue in DPRK is a monotonous diet - mainly rice/maize, kimchi and bean paste - lacking in essential fats and protein".
