Security officials prepare for 9/11 anniversary

As the 13th anniversary of the September 11th attacks approaches, there are no specific threats against Washington or New York, but authorities are concerned about the rising power of militant groups around the world, which presents a complex terrorism picture. New York and Washington are still the top terrorist targets but U.S. intelligence officials recognize that the rest of the country is just a vulnerable.

North Korea Fires Back

North Korea accused Washington of seeking to "provoke a second Korean War" as the regime prepared to hold maritime military exercises off the eastern coast. The Associated Press reports U.S. and regional authorities were watching closely for signs that North Korea might fire short- or mid-range missiles during the June 25 to July 10 timeframe cited in a no-sail ban for military drills sent to Japan's Coast Guard.

North Korea had warned previously it would fire a long-range missile as a response to U.N. Security Council condemnation of an April rocket launch seen as a cover for its ballistic missile technology.

An underground nuclear test last month drew more Security Council action: a resolution seeking to clamp down on North Korea's trading of banned arms and weapons-related material by requiring U.N. member states to request inspections of ships carrying suspected cargo.
