North Korea on Friday vowed to retaliate if punitive U.N. sanctions are imposed for its latest nuclear test, and U.S. officials said there are new signs Py-ongyang may be planning more long-range missile launches.
Three ballistic missile crew members from the Minot Air Force Base who fell asleep while holding classified launch code devices will be disciplined, the Air Force said Thursday.
“Actions have been initiated, including appropriate disciplinary measures or other sanctions,” the Air Force said in a statement. “We demand adherence to the highest standards in all our activities involving nuclear weapons.”

The Air Force said no one was seriously injured and the public was not in danger.
