Latest VIDEO: North Korea Shows Footage of Recent Launch of Ballistic Missiles

Tue Sep 6, 2016 14:20:06

North Korea’s state-run television KRT on Tuesday (September 6) broadcast a video of a recent launch of ballistic missiles and still photographs of leader Kim Jong Un observing them.

The South Korean and US militaries said North Korea fired three ballistic missiles into the sea off its east coast on Monday (September 5), as the leaders of the Group of 20 major economies held a summit in China, the North’s main diplomatic ally.

The missiles were fired from a region south of the capital Pyongyang just after noon (10.00 p.m. ET) and flew about 1,000 km (600 miles), hitting Japan’s air defense identification zone, South Korea's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

However, KRT did not give the date of the exercise, as it customarily reports activities of its leader without dates or locations.

The missile launches were the latest in a series by the isolated North this year in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, supported by China, that ban all ballistic missile-related activities by the North.

Pyongyang rejects the ban as infringing its sovereign right to pursue a space program and self defense.
