North Korea has tested a new long-range cruise missile capable of hitting much of Japan, state media said today.
The weekend tests saw missiles travelling up to 1,500 kms, the official KCNA news agency said.
It suggests North Korea is still capable of developing weapons despite food shortages and an economic crisis.
The US military said, the latest tests posed threats to the international community and neighbouring Japan.
A picture in the North Korean Rodong Sinmun newspaper showed a missile being fired from a launch vehicle, while another could be seen in horizontal flight.
