- Story Text: People in Guam said on Friday (August 18) morning that they're still unfazed after North Korea threatened to fire missiles over to the island more than a week ago.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has delayed a decision on firing missiles towards Guam while he waits to see what the United States does, the North's state media reported on Tuesday (August 15).
Despite the recent scares Guam's tourism bureau said on Wednesday (August 16) tourists kept on coming to the pacific island as expected.
Pyongyang's plans to fire missiles near Guam prompted a surge in tensions in the region last week, with U.S. President Donald saying the U.S. military was "locked and loaded" if North Korea acted unwisely.
