SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspected Saturday’s test of a new weapon, which was developed to suit the country’s terrain, state media KCNA said on Sunday.

North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles on Saturday, South Korea said, calling it a show of force against joint new military exercises with the United States.
