(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) North Korea's official news agency KCNA released photos showing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un guiding the launch of a Hwasong-12 missile. The undated images were released as North Korea said on Saturday (September 16) it aims to reach an "equilibrium" of military force with the United States, which earlier signalled its patience for diplomacy is wearing thin after Pyongyang fired a missile over Japan for the second time in under a month. Kim was shown beaming as he watched the missile fly from a moving launcher in photos released by the agency, surrounded by several officials.
