SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea said today the latest test-firing of its “super-large” multiple rocket launcher was a final review of the weapon’s combat application, a suggestion that the country is preparing to deploy the new weapons system soon.

South Korea’s military earlier said North Korea fired two projectiles, likely from the same “super-large” rocket launcher, on Thursday. It expressed “strong regret” over the launches and urged North Korea to stop escalating tensions.

Today, North’s Korean Central News Agency confirmed the launches were made with the presence of leader Kim Jong Un and other top officials.
