North Korea warns embassies to have a plan to evacuate

A warning from North Korea to foreign diplomats. Have a plan ready to evacuate your embassies. The country says beginning five days from now, it cannot guarantee their safety.

This comes with speculation that North Korea could be preparing for a launch. That speculation centers around mid-April where there are several anniversaries marked by North Koreans.

Last year on April 11, Kim Jong Un came to power and April 15 is the birthday of North Korea's founder.

Despite the rhetoric and the threats, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff say he doesn't see anything to indicate this is a different pattern of behavior from North Korea. That's something other U.S. officials said earlier this week.
