North Korean millitary to stand down

Following the house arrest of Kim Jong-un just hours after he seized control of the North Korean government, North Korean troops are returning to a low level of readiness.

Kim Jong-un placed the troops as part of the military buildup on Readiness Condition 1, making them ready to move and enter battle at any time. After the coup by military and civic leaders to remove Kim Jong-un from power, they returned to Readiness Condition 4, the lowest level of readiness.
