**NKorea Threatens Attacks on Guam, Hawaii, US Mainland**
North Korea has issued fresh threats against the United States, this time warning it could fire rockets on Guam, Hawaii and the U.S. mainland in retaliation for American bomber sorties.
The Korean People's Army also said Tuesday that "all artillery troops including strategic rocket units and long-range artillery units" have been placed in a "combat ready posture."
It is the latest in a series of threats by Pyongyang against the U.S. and its regional allies. North Korea's rockets are not believed to have the ability to hit the U.S. mainland.
The statement came just hours after South Korean President Park Geun-hye warned the North to abandon its nuclear weapons and stop making provocations, saying this is the only way for Pyongyang to survive.
Ms. Park made the comments during a speech to mark the third anniversary of the deadly sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan - an attack that Seoul blames on Pyongyang. The North denies conducting the attack, which left 46 sailors dead.
**Suicide Bombers Kill 5 Police in Eastern Afghanistan**
Afghan officials say a group of suicide bombers has attacked a police base in the eastern city of Jalalabad, killing at least five officers.
Police say one of the attackers set off a car bomb early Tuesday at the entrance to the police headquarters. At least two others then blew themselves up inside the facility. Several others militants were killed in an hour-long gun battle with police.
The Taliban immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which also left at least four others wounded.
The attack came as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a brief visit to the country. Kerry met with President Hamid Karzai in Kabul Monday. He is expected to hold a series of private meetings before leaving Tuesday.
