EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korea's state-run television KRT on Tuesday (November 3) released still photographs of leader Kim Jong Un watching a rocket firing drill by anti-aircraft units of the Korean People's Army (KPA). The still photographs aired by KRT showed various rockets being fired and Kim looking at the drills through binoculars. KRT said the drills involved four anti-aircraft units deployed at the western border and that Kim ordered further development of modern and precise rockets. Kim was accompanied by North Korean Director of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People's Army, Hwang Pyong So, KRT added. KRT did not specify the exact date or location of the drill. In August, North Korea agreed with South Korea to end a military standoff that sparked an exchange of artillery fire after the South began propaganda broadcasts in response to a landmine blast that seriously wounded two of its soldiers. The two Koreas are technically still at war as the 1950-1953 Korean War ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty.
