Kim Jong Un attends concert hailing North Korean missile launch
Pyongyang has hosted several special events to mark the July 4 launch of the Hwasong-14 missile.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has attended a pop concert hailing the successful launch of his country’s first intercontinental ballistic missile.
Topping the bill at the show was the Moranbong Band, an all-female ensemble hand-picked by Mr Kim which serves as something of the “soft” face of his regime.
Pyongyang has hosted several special events to mark the July 4 launch of the Hwasong-14 missile, which is believed to be capable of reaching most of Alaska and possibly further.
The concert, played before a packed crowd, many in uniform, also featured dancing displays.
Clips of the event shown on North Korean television on Monday depicted the crowd repeatedly cheering and applauding Mr Kim.
