North Korea tested new long-range cruise missiles over weekend: state media

DPRK leader Kim Jong Un reportedly did not attend the tests on Saturday and Sunday

The North Korean military successfully tested new nuclear-capable "long-range cruise missiles” on Saturday and Sunday, according to the state-run Voice of Korea (VOK). 

Calling it a “strategic weapon” developed over the past two years, state media said the cruise missiles will serve as an “effective deterrent ensuring the security of our state more firmly and overpowering powerfully the anti-DPRK military moves of the hostile forces.”
