North Korea has hurled racial slurs at President Barack Obama as the communist state blamed the US for shutting down its internet amid the Sony hacking row.

The North’s powerful National Defence Commission said Mr Obama was behind the release of Sony Pictures’ film The Interview and called him a “monkey inhabiting a tropical forest”.

North Korea has denied being involved in the crippling cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, but expressed fury over the comedy depicting an assassination of its leader Kim Jong Un. After Sony initially called off the release in a decision criticised by Mr Obama, the movie opened this week.

The defence commission also accused Washington of being responsible for intermittent shutdowns of North Korean websites this week and said America would face consequences for its hostility.
