THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Relisting N. Korea on terrorist state list

A US House committee on Thursday passed a bill calling for relisting North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. There are 21 terror acts subject to re-examination as to whether North Korea should be redesignated as a state sponsor of terrorism by the US.

North Korea was put on the US terrorism sponsor list for the 1987 mid-air bombing of a Korean Air flight that killed all 115 people aboard but the US administration of former President George W. Bush removed the Korean Peninsula from the list in 2008 in exchange for progress in denuclearization talks.
