Tensions between USA and North Korea are rising following cyber-attack on film company Sony Pictures, and subsequent decision by Sony to cancel all screenings of its movie 'The Interview'. cancelled film is political action comedy about two US journalists who arrange interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with intention of assassinating him. group calling itself The Guardians of Peace has claimed responsibility for attack. It warned that it would attack 9/11 style any cinema that showed movie. It also threatened Sony that it would put online more confidential data that could damage company if it did not pull the movie.

Sony canceled release of its movie "in interests of public safety" after several US cinema chains refused to screen it. This has caused storm of protest in America. President Obama said: "We cannot have society in which some dictators some place can start imposing censorship here." He added: "Imagine what they start doing once they see documentary that they don't like or news reports that they don't like." Senator John McCain called cyber-attack " act of war" and "the greatest blow to free speech" he had seen in his lifetime. Another politician said: "America has lost its first cyber-war." Actor Rob Lowe tweeted: "Everyone caved [in]. hackers won. An utter and complete victory for them."
