Donald Trump says 'North Korea is looking for trouble'

The US President (top right) wrote the message on Twitter after revealing he had urged his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to pressure Pyongyang in to stopping its nuclear programme. His warning came as Russia admitted it is 'extremely worried' the US will attack Kim Jong-Un (bottom right) after North Korea warned it has US bases 'in its nuclear sights'. Pyongyang had earlier threatened 'catastrophic consequences' after Donald Trump sent an armada of warships to the Korean Peninsula (left). At the same time, China has moved 150,000 troops to its border to deal with a possible influx of North Korean refugees amid fears Trump may strike Kim Jong-un following the surprise US missile attack on Syria last week.

French police and militant wardens clash in Fleury-Merogis

Around 350 guards who work in Fleury-Merogis, in the southern suburbs of Paris, were protesting against conditions that have become a breeding ground for radicalism (left, inset bottom shows footage of the riots). They set up barricades and lit fires, before riot police moved in shortly after 10pm last night. The protests were organised by a number of prison officer trade unions who say their jobs are becoming harder every day because of overcrowding and increased violence. There are some 4,500 inmates in the prison, which was built in the 1960s to accommodate around 3,000. Current inmates include Salah Abdeslam, the 27-year-old Islamic State operative who survived the November 2015 attacks on Paris (inset top right).
