South Korea confirmed it has a plan in place to assassinate the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un - but the plan would only be carried out if there were threats of a nuclear strike, defense officials say.
The defense minister explained that if necessary, a team of elite troops is trained and ready to take out North Korea's leader, and then use precision air strikes to take out important targets.
World leaders have long since suspected South Korea had a plan like this, but this is the first time anyone has admitted to it officially.
