North Korea has announced it conducted on Friday a tactical ballistic missile test that features a new autonomous navigation system. Korean Central Television said on Saturday that the country's Missile Administration carried out the test-launch in waters off the eastern coast of the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea has been developing tactical ballistic missiles, which the North said are designed to carry nuclear warheads. On Friday, Kim stressed the need to accelerate activities for bolstering the country's "nuclear force” when he visited a defense industrial complex.
