US stocks fall sharply

U.S. stocks fell sharply Thursday morning, with the Dow slipping more than 100 points.
     
Lacklustre results from retailers Macy's and Kohl's added to investor nervousness over escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea.
     
North Korea said it was completing plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam in an unusually detailed threat.
     
The threat followed U.S. President Donald Trump's warning on Tuesday that any threats by Pyongyang would be "met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".
