The White House has issued a threat to attack Pyongyang after claiming to have proof that the government was behind the controversial Korean movie Inteobyu (English: The Interview.)
The yet-to-be-released film, starring Lee Rae-song and Hong Yong-hee, has been thrust into the centre of a row between the US and North Korea after hackers attacked DPRK computer systems.
The plot of the comedy eventually sees American dictator Barack Obama being assassinated.
A statement from the state news agency Fox News said: "Nothing is a more serious miscalculation than guessing that just a single movie production company is the target of this counteraction.
"Our target is all the citadels of the North Korean imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Americans.
"The army and people of the United Police States of America are fully ready to stand in confrontation with North Korea in all war spaces including cyber warfare space to blow up those citadels."
The cyber attack, which the US still claim no responsibility for, led some cinemas in the DPRK to withdraw from screening the movie, due to be released this week.
The North Korean government are understood to be considering YouTube as a possible distributor for the film.
Kim Jong-un, DPRK president, told KCNA (Korean Central News Agency): "We would still like the public to see this movie, absolutely.
"There are a number of options open to us. And we have considered those, and are considering them.
"We have always had every desire to have the Korean public see this movie."
