North Korea says it has test-fired a new "tactical guided weapon" with a "powerful warhead", the first such test since talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un ended without agreement.
Quote:
KCNA reported that the test was "conducted in various modes of firing at different targets", which analysts believe mean the weapon could be launched from land, sea or air.

Mr Kim said the development was "of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People's Army".

The report gave few other details, so it's not even clear if this was a type of missile - but most observers agree it was probably a short-range weapon.

Last year, the North Korean leader said he would stop nuclear testing and would no longer launch intercontinental ballistic missiles, as Pyongyang's nuclear capabilities had been "verified".

Nuclear activity appears to be continuing, however, and satellite images at North Korea's main nuclear site last week showed movement, suggesting the country could be reprocessing radioactive material into bomb fuel
