South Korea’s Alert on Possible Attack Denied By North Korea, Calls It Slander

South Korea’s Foreign Ministry issued a terrorism “alert” level on May 2 on five of their diplomatic missions in the region, which consist of its embassies in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, and consulates in Russia and China. The alert, indicating a “high risk” terrorist attack by North Korea, was rejected as “fake news” and “slander” by the latter’s embassy in Cambodia.
