North Korea says leader Kim supervised test of new anti-ship missiles | Reuters

SEOUL North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test launch of newly developed anti-ship cruise missiles, the country's official KCNA news agency reported on Friday.

Its new missile was "a powerful measure of offence to hit a group of enemy warships attempting to stage military strikes" on the North, KCNA said.

Pyongyang launched several land-to-sea missiles early on Thursday off its east coast, South Korea's military said. North Korea's official media routinely report on such missile launches the following day. (Reporting by Ju-min Park and Soyoung Kim, editing by G Crosse)
