Trump's 'armada' was far from N. Korea during tension

US President Donald Trump said he had ordered an "armada" as a warning to deter North Korea. But military officials say at that moment, the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group was heading in the opposite direction to take part in joint exercises with the Australian navy in the Indian Ocean, more than 5,600km south-west of the Korean Peninsula.
