North Korea has unveiled a new ballistic missile at a military parade in Pyongyang on Thursday.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was said to have watched the display of armored vehicles and other hardware as aircraft flew overhead.
The BBC's Laura Bicker reports.
Kim Jong-un, in a leather coat and fur hat is picture smiling and waving as the display of vehicles and missiles rolled through the capital.
The parade comes after a congress of the ruling Workers' Party, the first to be held in five years, where Mr. Kim decried the United States as North Korea's biggest enemy and vowed to expand his country's nuclear arsenal.
State media described a new submarine-launched ballistic missile as the world's most powerful weapon.
There were at least four of them in pictures being paraded past flag-waving crowds.
