1. Trump slams N.Korea in his first UN speech

US President Donald Trump has warned that North Korea would face total destruction if it refuses to give up its nuclear and missile development.

Trump gave his first speech at the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

Trump said the United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, the country will have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea.

He mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a "rocket man" on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.

He urged all countries, including China and Russia, to work together to isolate North Korea until it ceases its "hostile" behavior.

Trump also accused North Korea of having kidnapped a 13-year-old Japanese girl to enslave her as a language tutor for its spies.

He was apparently referring to Megumi Yokota, who was 13 when she was abducted by North Korean agents in 1977.
