North Korea says it tested a ‘powerful warhead’

WASHINGTON — North Korea tested a new type of tactical guided weapon on Wednesday, state media Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Thursday morning local time.

The test of “a powerful warhead” was overseen by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and marks the first public weapons test from the rogue regime since President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with Kim in Singapore last year.

The White House and Pentagon did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. A U.S. defense official said that U.S. Strategic Command did not detect a missile launch from North Korea.
