CCTV footage of Kim Jong-nam death suggests another N. Korean suspect

CCTV footage of Kim Jong-nam death suggests another N. Korean suspect

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un personally monitored the ground test of a new high-thrust rocket engine, the North Korean Central News Agency reported on Sunday (18 March).

A North Korean military unit tasked with striking USA bases in Japan was involved in those launches, the state news agency said.

Mr Kim said the "whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries".

Earlier this month, North Korea conducted an Extended Range (ER) Scud missile test, which is believed to have taken place near the launch station as well.

"We do not want to interfere in (other country's) political matters, but it is our responsibility to investigate a murder case which occurred within our jurisdiction".

Since the Korean War ended with an armistice nearly 65 years ago, relations between the USA and North Korea have often been on a scary roller-coaster ride - another military confrontation always in the offing.

The KCNA said he was accompanied by Ri Pyong-chol, Kim Jong-sik and other leading officials of the North's ruling Workers' Party of Korea, and scientists and technicians in the field of rocket research.

It said the test was meant to confirm the engine's thrust power and gauge the reliability of its control system and structural safety.

Second, a tariff plan can not increase rates for a period of six months, but Jio reduced it from December 31 to December 3, 2016. The telecom regulator had also noted the technological shift in telecom wherein voice services are no longer separate from data.

The report marks the latest challenge to the United States from Kim's defiant regime.

This indicates it was a new type of rocket engine for long-range missiles.

Tillerson was due to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday, and the North's nuclear program was likely to top the agenda at that meeting.

North Korea has been referring to the deceased as Kim Chol, the name that appeared in the victim's passport, and has rejected the police findings that VX was used to kill him.

"There are more. persons that are involved in the murder of Kim Jong-Nam, we will use the proper legal channels to get them", police chief Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters. "China has done little to help!"

The facility is near the site where the isolated country launched four extended-range Scud missiles earlier this month as part of a practice exerise aimed at striking USA military bases in Japan.

In a total switch from previous policy, Mr Tillerson said: "Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended".

Space rockets have a similar design to intercontinental ballistic missiles.
