North Korea tests “new type” of rocket

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
Pyonyang’s state media has reported that North Korea’s latest missile launch was a successful test of a new type of rocket.

The agency said, that leader Kim Jong-Un “personally oversaw” the test-launch of the new type of rocket.

The isolated North is under multiple sets of United Nations sanctions over its nuclear and missile programmes, which have set alarm bells ringing around the region and in Washington. The North said it needs atomic weapons to defend itself against the threat of invasion and is widely believed to be making progress in its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.

Tensions between the two reached new heights in recent weeks, with Washington saying military action was an option being considered and Pyongyang issuing threats of its own.
