North Korean leader Kim Jong-un witnessed a massive exercise Tuesday with live ammunition on the anniversary of the founding of his country's armed forces amid mounting tension with the United States over Pyongyang's missile program.
North Korea deployed a large number of long-range artillery units in the Wonsan area on the east coast to conduct live-ammunition training on Tuesday to mark its 85th anniversary, the South Korean army said.
Tire showed a large number of artillery firing on a small island off the coast, and the maneuver included anti-ship rocket fire.
The growing threat of North Korea's nuclear and missile threat is the biggest security challenge facing US President Donald Trump.
Trump sent aircraft carrier Carl Vinson to conduct water exercises off the Korean Peninsula as a warning to North Korea and to show solidarity with US allies.
