Kim tests big weapon

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

NORTH Korea con­firmed yes­ter­day it con­ducted its third test-fir­ing of a new “su­per­large” mul­ti­ple rocket launcher that it says ex­pands its abil­ity to de­stroy en­emy tar­gets in sur­prise at­tacks.

Ex­perts say the North could con­tinue to ramp up weapons demon­stra­tions ahead of an end-of-year dead­line set by leader Kim Jong-un for the US to of­fer mu­tu­ally ac­cept­able terms to sal­vage a frag­ile diplo­macy.
