Kim Jong Un oversaw test of short-range ballistic missile on Saturday: KCNA

DPRK leader hails military's "excellent operation" in first test of its kind in months

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday attended a test-firing of "long-range multiple rocket launchers and tactical guided weapons," the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Sunday, including what appears to be a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM).

The report follows news Saturday morning from the South Korean military that a test of "unidentified and multiple short-range projectiles" had been detected taking place from North Korea's Hodo peninsula, on the east coast.
