North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said the Korean peninsula would be engulfed by "massive nuclear disaster" if war breaks out there again, warning the US it will not be safe in the event of a conflict.

Kim added he would not beg for peace and vowed to protect the impoverished but nuclear-armed North with strong self-defence measures against enemies.

The young leader also hailed the recent execution of his powerful uncle as a "resolute action", labelling Jang Song-thaek "scum".

It was the first time Kim has publicly criticised his disgraced uncle, who was executed on December 12th on charges including treason and corruption.
