Kim Jong Un celebrates launch of new intercontinental ballistic missile

Kim Jong Un, North Korea's leader, said his country aimed to have the world's most powerful nuclear force as he celebrated the launch of its newest intercontinental ballistic missile at a ceremony with his young daughter.

Kim also handed out promotional materials to more than 100 officials and scientists for their work on the Hwasong -- 17 -- dubbed the monster missile by analysts and believed to be capable of reaching the U.S. mainland just days after Pyongyang test-fired it in one of its most powerful launches yet.

Kim said that North Korean scientists had made a wonderful leap forward in the development of the technology of mounting nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles, as the world's strongest strategic weapon, as a result of the new ICBM.
