North Korea orders rockets on standby following U.S. B-2 stealth bombers over South

North Korea media reporting its leader Kim Jong Un has just convened an urgent military meeting at its Supreme Command.

"The time has come to settle accounts with the U.S.," Kim said, according to North Korean state media.

North Korea ordered rockets to be on standby for firing at U.S. targets.

Kim: "Time has come to settle accounts"

These latest moves are in retaliation to the U.S. flying two B-2 Spirit bombers over South Korea. It was a training exercise but also meant as forceful signal to North Korea.

The stealth bombers are capable of carrying both conventional and nuclear weapons. They flew more than 6,500 miles from Missouri to South Korea.

U.S. Forces in Korea say the mission "demonstrates the United States ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes quickly and at will."

He chose a ring made of silver that was coated in gold – rather than a ring made of gold.

And Francis  went to a juvenile detention center in Rome Thursday, where he washed the feet of a dozen young inmates both men and women.

Previous popes usually just washed the feet of priests, who you know can only be men, as a way to re-enact Jesus dressing up as a servant to wash the feet of his disciples.
