North Korean Official Threatens South Korea

North Korea followed up its nuclear test last week with threats aimed at its southern enemy during a UN conference on disarmament in Geneva Tuesday.

"As the saying goes a new born puppy knows no fear of a tiger," said North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong to the meeting. "South Korea's erratic behavior would only herald its final destruction."

Yong Ryong avoided specifically mentioning the nuclear test, instead referring to a "resolute step for self-defense."
