North Korean media shows latest ICBM launch

STORY: In the footage and photographs aired on KRT, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was seen watching the launch. It also showed visuals supposedly shot by a camera mounted on the missile in space.

North Korea fired the ICBM into the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan on Thursday (March 16), hours before South Korea's president flew to Tokyo for a summit that discussed ways to counter the nuclear-armed North.

South Korean and American forces began 11 days of joint drills, dubbed "Freedom Shield 23," on Monday (March 13), held on a scale not seen since 2017 to counter the North's growing threats.
