North Korea test-fires long-range cruise missiles as arsenal continues to grow


SEOUL- North Korea successfully launched a new type of long-range cruise missile over the weekend, state media reported Monday, as the secretive nation continues to develop its weapons program amid stalled negotiations with the United States. The cruise missiles flew for over two hours in oval and figure-8 patterns while traveling 932 miles, Korean Central News Agency reported. The distance puts Japan within reach of conventional or nuclear warheads. The launches took place on Saturday and Sunday, KCNA said, and mark the first known weapons tests North Korea has conducted since March, when it fired a pair of short-range ballistic missiles.
