North Korea crisis: China paper publishes nuclear attack advice

One of the cartoons advises vomiting as a way of expelling radioactive toxins

Jilin's official newspaper today (Dec. 6) published a rare, if not unprecedented, full-page article instructing its citizens on how to protect themselves in case of a nuclear attack.

A state-run newspaper in a Chinese city near the border with North Korea on Wednesday published a page of "common sense" advice on how readers can protect themselves from a nuclear attack or explosion.

An American B-1B supersonic bomber flew over South Korea on Wednesday as part of a large-scale joint military drills with Seoul.

Tensions are running high on the Korean Peninsula, with Pyongyang continuing missile and nuclear tests as the USA holds drills with its regional allies near the North Korean border. Light radiation, blast waves, early-stage nuclear radiation, nuclear electro-magnetic pulses, and radioactive pollution can cause serious destruction and casualties, the article says.

Among other things, people have been advised to lie in a ditch if they are outside during a nuclear attack and to take iodine tablets if there is radiation in the vicinity.

Cartoon illustrations of ways to dispel radioactive contamination were also provided, such as using water to wash off shoes and using cotton buds to clean ears, as well as a picture of a vomiting child to show how medical help can be sought to speed the expulsion of radiation through stomach pumping and induced urination.

ACCC approves Foxtel and Fox Sports merger
The proposed merger would not substantially lessen competition, the ACCC found, despite increasing News Corp's stake in Foxtel as a result.

The United States has called for and have implemented sanctions against North Korea, a move that is squeezing the regime's energy supply.

The North also conducted its most powerful nuclear test in September which it described as a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon designed for ICBMs.

The article did not mention by name North Korea, Jilin's neighbor that has recently heightened tensions with a slew of nuclear tests.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the Guam-based bomber simulated land strikes at a military field near South Korea's eastern coast during a drill with USA and South Korean fighter jets.

U.S. President Donald Trump has warned he would destroy the North Korean regime if it threatened the United States with nuclear weapons.

The unusual report on nuclear attacks in Chinese media comes at a time when North Korea has not stopped testing weapons, and South Korea has begun screening North Korean defectors for radiation exposure.
