The still photographs, broadcast on the North's state-run television KRT, showed Kim watching missiles being fired from surface and aerial targets being blown up. KRT, however, did not specify the date or location of the test firing.

North Korean state television broadcasts still photographs of its leader Kim Jong Un watching a test of what Pyongyang says is a new type of anti-air guided weapon system.

North Korea's state media on Saturday (April 2) released still photographs of its leader Kim Jong Un observing a test of what it said was a new type of anti-air guided weapon system.

North Korea fired a missile into the sea off its east coast on Friday (April 1), the South's military said, hours after the leaders of South Korea, Japan and the United States warned Pyongyang to end "provocations" or face more pressure.

South Korean officials said it was a short-range surface to air missile and investigations were on to determine the range.

The North has fired a string of rockets in recent weeks including a long-range rocket in February that launched an object in space. Leader Kim Jong Un has supervised some of the launches in defiance of U.N. sanctions.

North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test on Jan. 6, leading to new Security Council sanctions in early March. South Korea and the United States have imposed separate sanctions.
