Prime Minister Bill English talks to Susie Ferguson about North Korea's warning Australia could be in range of a nuclear attack.

Last week Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said North Korea's nuclear weapons programme posed a "serious threat" to Australia unless it was stopped by the international community.

A spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry responded by accusing Australia of it continuing to blindly toe the US line and warning that would be a "suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of North Korea."
