Korea testing warheads loaded with anthrax

The revelation comes as the UK's Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said North Korea is now on the way to developing ballistic missiles which could strike London, branding the country a "massive threat" and a "real danger" to Britain. Above, the Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile.

Rebecca Hersman, a former Defense Department deputy assistant secretary for countering weapons of mass destruction, was quoted in a Washington Post article speaking about the country's bio-weapon program: "North Korea is bad enough when you're talking about their nuclear and missiles program".
