Trump says Kim Jong-un's message 'has been received loud and clear' and warns 'all options are on the table' following North Korean missile launch over Japan, prompting Seoul show of force
U.S. President Donald Trump said in a statement that he had received Kim Jong-un's message 'loud and clear' after this morning's missile test, and that it signalled ‘contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior’. Trump added that ‘all options are on the table' when it comes to solving the issue with North Korea. It followed a threat by South Korea to 'exterminate' Kim Jong-un if he continues to risk the safety of its population. Within hours of the missile launch, South Korea had responded with 'overwhelming show of force' by bombing a shooting range in Taebaek, Gangwon-do province, near its border to the North as part of a military drill, launching footage which contained a stern warning to Kim Jong-Un. The rocket, reportedly a mid-range ballistic missile designed to carry a nuclear payload, was fired from a region near the capital Pyongyang over Japan. It broke into three pieces off the coast of Hokkaido and landed in the Pacific Ocean, around 700 miles east of Cape Erimo, after travelling 1,700m in eight minutes.

Judge rules in favour of Sydney identity, 75, who carried signs calling Prime Ministers c*** because Australians don't find the swear word offensive
A judge has ruled it is legal to call Tony Abbott (inset) a c*** because Australians don't find the swear word offensive. A New South Wales court ruled on Tuesday that a 75-year-old man's sign, which said Tony You C***', was not offensive because it was essential political comment and the word 'c***' was 'prevalent in everyday language'. Well-known Sydney identity Danny Lim (left and right) was seen in Edgecliffe, Sydney's eastern suburbs in August 2015 with a sign bearing the allegedly offensive phrase. 'Peace, smile, people can change, Tony you c***, liar, heartless, cruel, peace be with you,' the sign read (left). Judge Andrew Scotting said 'the prevalence of the impugned word in Australian language is evidence that it is considered less offensive in Australia than other English speaking countries'.
