NORTH Korea leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered residents of the country’s capital Pyongyang to leave the city immediately, sparking fears he may be preparing for war.
Reports in Russian newspaper Pravda Report claim more than 600,000 people – around 25 per cent of the city’s population – are being urgently evacuated, as tensions escalate between North Korea and the United States.
According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.
Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on North Korea’s biggest national celebration, called ‘Day of the Sun’.
A tweet from Channel NewsAsia’s Beijing Correspondent Jeremy Koh said: “We’ve been told to be ready to move out at 6.20am, but no idea why. Also, no cell phones allowed.”
More than 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birthday of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15.
Officials in North Korea have already warned nuclear war could break out at any minute thanks to the “extremely tense” situation on the Korean Peninsula.
The US sent a navy strike group towards the Western Pacific in a show of force, with North Korea retorting with warnings of a nuclear attack in retaliation to any show of aggression.
The move comes after president Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airfield in response for the country’s brutal chemical attack which left 79 civilians dead.
North Korean officials have given no clues as to the nature of the “surprise event” or where it would take place.
However, past announcements of a similar nature have turned out to be relatively low-key.

However, on the 100th Day of the Sun, held in April 2012, North Korea attempted to launch a long-range rocket.
With war tensions raging, officials worldwide are wondering whether Kim Jong-un will use the special date to strike America after months of threats over nuclear weapons.
Chilling Coded Radio Messages Sent Out To North Korean Spies As The ‘World Stage’ Is Set For An ‘Event’
North Korea has resumed a radio broadcast of random numbers, believed to be sending encrypted messages to their spies around the world. It was the 31st such broadcast since June 24th of 2016 amid escalating tensions with South Korea and as they report, NKorea had earlier suspended such clandestine broadcasts all the way back in 2000.
Coming as tensions with NKorea reach a fever peak with even China threatening to bomb NKorea’s nuclear facilities if they cross China’s ‘bottom line’ while President Trump sends a naval armada to the region while NKorea’s Kim warns of a nuclear strike if provoked, we see why experts warn we’re only one ‘accident’ away from the powder keg exploding.
Are there North Korean spies here in America and were they the recipients of these encrypted messages? Knowing that China has decided to get into the mix may be exactly what the world needs to help keep Kim in his place yet if war develops on that front, we continue to pray that Trump and the Pentagon are prepared to take down the two NKorean satellites that fly over America several times daily, reportedly capable of delivering an EMP strike upon America that would officially kick off ‘the final days’.
Mysterious random numbers were announced on a chilling state-run radio show last night.Pyongyang Radio addressed “members of the remote education university” in the broadcast at 12am local time. The message was believed to be instructions to North Korean sleeper cells undercover in foreign countries. It is understood spies living abroad are able to understand the code and act on the instructions.
A similar message was aired on March 24 – just days before Kim Jong-un fired a missile into the Sea of Japan. The message comes amid claims North Korea will detonate another nuclear bomb within 15 days. In the program, the announcer said: “From now on, we announce tasks of mechanical engineering review for the Unit 21 expedition members of the remote education university. “Number 69 on page 602, number 79 on page 133, number 18 on page 216.”
North Korea regularly used book ciphers to communicate with spooks in South Korea during the Cold War. Pyongyang halted the broadcasts in 2000 as relations with the South thawed. But leader Kim Jong-un appears to have resumed the practice.
