Weekend launches saw the weapons capable of carrying nuclear warheads travelling up to 930 miles, the KCNA news agency claimed yesterday.

Pictures in North Korea’s official newspaper showed a missile being fired, and another in horizontal flight.

Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Katsunobu Kato said “Japan has significant concerns” and was working with the US and South Korea to monitor the situation. The US military said its commitment to defending allies South Korea and Japan “remains ironclad”.

It is the country’s first long-range cruise missile that could possibly carry a nuclear warhead, say experts, who are unsure if North Korea has the ability to create one small enough to fit.
