North Korea parades military might

North Korea displayed new long-range missiles that could one day threaten continental America at a vast military parade, showcasing the isolated nation’s defiance as a US aircraft carrier group headed to the region.

Pyongyang warned it was prepared to take the “toughest” action unless the US ended its “military hysteria”, with speculation growing that the regime is preparing to conduct a sixth nuclear test.
On a sunny morning in the North Korean capital, military vehicles and tens of thousands of soldiers filled Kim Il-sung Square to celebrate the birth of Kim Il-sung, the country’s founding father, as a band played rousing military music, the instruments falling silent for oaths of loyalty to leader Kim Jong-un.
