ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was cheered by tens of thousands of spectators on Sunday (July 9) at a concert of music and dance staged to celebrate Pyongyang's successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). State-run television showed Kim being rhythmically cheered and applauded by members of the military and suited civilians as he entered and left the concert venue, the vast Chung Ju-Yung Gymnastics Hall. North Korea last Tuesday (July 4) test-fired a newly developed ICBM that some experts believe had the range to reach parts of the mainland United States. North Korea hailed the test as marking the completion of a strategic weapons arsenal that it says includes nuclear and hydrogen bombs.
