ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. North Korea's state-run television KRT on Thursday (November 30) broadcast footage of its leader Kim Jong Un monitoring the launch of a Hwasong-15 missile. North Korea said it successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile on Wednesday (November 29) in a "breakthrough" that puts the U.S. mainland within range of its nuclear weapons whose warheads could withstand re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere. The state's first missile test since mid-September came a week after U.S. President Donald Trump put North Korea back on a U.S. list of countries it says support terrorism, allowing it to impose more sanctions. North Korea, which also conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test in September, has tested dozens of ballistic missiles under its leader, Kim Jong Un, in defiance of international sanctions. The latest was the highest and longest any North Korean missile had flown, landing in the sea near Japan.
