ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. North Korea held a massive military parade on Saturday (April 15), showcasing some new weapons, as tensions on the peninsula mount. North Korea displayed what appeared to be new long-range and submarine-based missiles on the 105th birth anniversary of its founding father, Kim Il Sung, as a nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region. Missiles appeared to be the main theme of the giant parade, with Kim's grandson, leader Kim Jong Un, taking time to greet the commander of the Strategic Forces, the branch of the military that oversees the missile arsenal. A U.S. Navy attack on a Syrian airfield this month with Tomahawk missiles has raised questions about U.S. President Donald Trump's plans for reclusive North Korea, which has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions, regularly threatening to destroy the United States.
