These are the cities North Korea CAN destroy with nuclear weapons


North Korea declared itself a "nuclear power" after launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in Pyongyang's North Phyongan province earlier this month.


The terrifying launch came just 24 hours after the communist state warned Donald Trump it has unstoppable nukes that can hit anywhere on the Earth. 



Now supreme leader Kim Jong-un has sent the world another chilling message – by launching a second ICBM thought to be capable of reaching US shores. 

Tensions between the US and North Korea have reached boiling point in recent weeks with menacing threats from both sides.


Under Jong-un, North Korea has massively expanded its missile capabilities, with several fired into the Sea of Japan.

Since taking the White House, US President Donald Trump has vowed to “solve North Korea” with or without help from allies.



To ramp up pressure on Kim, Trump has dispatched a Marine strike force of US warships, fighter jets and troops to South Korean waters.

But Pyongyang has threatened an “annihilating strike” if Trump “wages reckless provocation against us”.

As fears of World War Three grow, Daily Star Online can reveal which cities could be in strike range of a North Korean missile strike.


The range of North Korea’s ICBM technology is unclear with some analysts claiming nukes could be within range of US shores.

North Korea has tested medium to long range missiles with varied success.


A medium long-range ICBM missile typically has a minimum range of around 3,400 miles.

But a map from Graphiq shows parts of Alaska just 3,700 miles away could be within range of nuclear oblivion.

At just 800 miles away, Tokyo in Japan – a major US ally – is one of the closest cities within striking distance.

Moscow in Russia, Tehran in Iran and Dubai in United Arab Emirates are close to being within strike range around 4,000 miles away.

Britain, at 5,200 miles away, is too far from North Korea to be concerned about a nuke attack.

The map was created using data from Reuters and Graphiq Staff Research.
