North Korea could nuke New York at ANY MINUTE, claims expert who says Kim Jong-un’s bombs are more advanced than anybody thought

NORTH Korea could nuke New York at any time with a “hell of a missile” more advanced than previously believed, an expert claims.

Researchers believe the threat posed by Kim Jong-un has been underestimated – with the latest missile test soaring seven times higher than the International Space Station.

It means original predictions a nuke would strike as far Alaska are wrong – with the consequences far more devastating as a missile could smash into New York.

North Korea announced the completion of its first ever successful intercontinental ballistic missile launch earlier this month.

The ICBM was the first of its kind to be launched by the secret state and the test sent shockwaves across the world after the trigger-happy tyrant vowed to turn the US into a “pile of ash”.

Jeffrey Lewis, professor at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies and host of nuclear studies podcast Arms Control Wonk, told The American Life: “This one could hit the United States with a nuclear weapon.

“People keep saying Alaska – but that’s people making themselves feel better.

“It demonstrated the range to go to Alaska but that doesn’t mean that is its maximum range. We’ve been modelling it and it looks a lot better than that.


“It probably can hit New York. This last one [test launch] went seven times higher than the International Space Station.

“It’s a hell of a missile.”

Beaming Kim hailed the July 4 test of the Hwasong-14 launcher as a “gift for American b******s”.

The regime has also conducted several underground tests of atom bombs, although it is not known if it has succeeded in shrinking the device to a size that could be carried on a missile.

Following the launch, America’s UN ambassador Nikki Haley said Washington was prepared to use the full range of its capabilities to defend itself and its allies from a threat coming from North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs.

The US diplomat did not rule out the use of military force if necessary.

Donald Trump has now launched a global campaign to tackle the North Korean threat and urged Kim’s ally China to apply pressure over his nuclear programme.
