North Korea is reportedly backing off its threat to fire missiles at Guam.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

North Korea's leader Kim Jung-un has decided not to fire missiles towards Guam. The "Wall Street Journal" reports the dictator changed his mind about the plan after consulting with his top commanders.

State run media stresses he could change his mind. U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis warned yesterday that if Pyonyang were to strike Guam with a missile, it would be considered an act of war.
