North Korea not imminent threat, says US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says there is no imminent threat from North Korea, despite Pyongyang saying it was considering strikes on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Flying into Guam, Mr Tillerson also defended President Donald Trump, who has threatened North Korea with "fire and fury".

He said Mr Trump just wanted to send a clear message to North Korea.

But the president has since boasted on Twitter about the US nuclear arsenal.
