The government of the US territory of Guam says it is relieved that North Korea has decided to take time to consider a planned missile attack. But Guam's Homeland Security chief says the threat level remains high.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un received a report from his army on plans to fire missiles towards Guam and said he would watch the actions of the United States before deciding to fire.

Al Jazeera's Craig Leeson reports from Guam, where residents have been advised to stock up on basic needs and groups have been holding peace rallies around the city.
