TREASURIES-U.S. yields hit session lows on North Korea tensions

NEW YORK, Sept 5 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields fell to session lows early Tuesday as investors flocked into low-risk government debt prompted by North Korea's biggest nuclear test yet two days ago and the possibility of more missile launches.

At 8:50 a.m. (1250 GMT), the yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes fell to 2.115 percent, down 4 basis points from Friday's close.
