North Korea vows retaliation

NORTH KOREA — North Korea has promised to retaliate against any country that imposes sanctions ordered by the United Nations.

The announcement comes just days after the communist country directly threatened the United States.

South Koreans are concerned after the North singled out the country and vowed to take action if American-backed sanctions are put into place.

North Korea's strongest ally, China, has also called for restraint.
