N. Korea warns foreign diplomats of 'grave inter-Korean situations': Seoul official
SEOUL, April 8 (Yonhap) -- Just two days after warning foreign diplomatic missions to leave Pyongyang, North Korea briefed foreign officials on the developments on the Korean Peninsula, but did not reiterate the warning to evacuate, a senior official at Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.

North Korea's foreign ministry on Friday asked foreign embassy officials based in Pyongyang to leave, saying a war could break out soon and the safety of foreigners could not be guaranteed, but the call for withdrawal was not mentioned during Sunday's meeting, according a foreign ministry official, requesting anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.
