North Korea threatened yesterday to sink a US aircraft carrier cruising towards the tense Korean peninsula, and said it would strike Australia with nuclear weapons if it blindly followed its American ally.

The latest warnings from Pyongyang came as two Japanese navy ships joined the American supercarrier strike group for exercises in the western Pacific.

However, it was the US President Donald Trump who ordered the USS Carl Vinson to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula in response to rising tension over the North's nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the United States and its regional allies.

Meanwhile according to the US Vice President Mike Pence, the carrier would arrive within days but no specific date has been confirmed yet.
