North Korea plans to carry out terror attacks on South Korea

It is believed that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered terror attacks to be carried out on South Koreans and these could happen in busy shopping malls, subways and other public places. It is feared that Kim Jong-Un could also target activists and defectors with poisoning attacks or entice them to go to China and kidnap them from there.
This has been reported in dated 18 February 2016.
The information on the terror warnings have apparently emerged in a briefing that was given by South Korea's National Intelligence Service to members of the country's ruling Saenuri Party. Presidential aide Kim Sung-woo has added a rejoinder that the possibility of North Korean attacks 'is increasing more than ever'.
North Korea has attacked South Korea in the past - like in 2010 it carried out shelling on an island that killed four South Koreans and in 1987 it was the bombing of a South Korean passenger plane in which 115 were killed.
The present terror attacks could target anti-Pyongyang activists, defectors and government officials apart from attacks on subways, shopping malls and other public places.
From all accounts, the current standoff between the two Koreas may not ease soon because Seoul and Washington are discussing deployment of sophisticated U.S. missile defense system in South Korea. Pyongyang warns that such an action would be a source of regional tension.
Moreover, Seoul and Washington have indicated that their annual springtime military drills will be the largest ever with involvement of nearly 15,000 U.S. troops - this would be double of the number Washington normally sends. And, in the opinion of North, these drills are preparation for a northward invasion.
