Guam officials were "ecstatic" Tuesday as North Korea appeared to back away from its threat to fire four missiles towards the U.S. territory in the western Pacific.Guam Homeland Security adviser George Charfauros dismissed reports that satellite images showed North Korea moving a missile into place for a possible launch, saying it was likely "just a ruse".However, Guam residents received a nasty jolt Tuesday after two radio stations accidentally issued emergency warnings to indicate an imminent threat or attack.The North replied by setting a mid-August deadline to finalise plans to test-fire its missiles towards Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific.Despite the cooler language from North Korea, Tonorio said there was no change to the threat level in Guam, which is home to two large U.S. military installations and more than 6,000 military personnel.
