N Korea says US is 'empire of the devil'
North Korea - named by US President George Bush as part of an "axis of evil" - has described the US as the "empire of the devil".

The official North Korean news agency said Mr Bush was using the threat supposedly posed by North Korea as a pretext for a huge increase in defence spending.

Earlier this week, Mr Bush presented Congress with a $2,000bn budget, which represents the biggest military build-up since the fall of the Soviet Union.
