North Korea unveils new weapons at military parade

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has warned that his country will “fully mobilize” its nuclear force if threatened as he took center stage at a massive military parade to mark the 75th anniversary of the country’s ruling party. However, Kim avoided direct criticism toward Washington during Saturday’s event, which took place just weeks before the U.S. presidential election and instead focused on a domestic message of unity. Outside observers were expecting the North to possibly unveil the latest weapons in its growing nuclear arsenal that threatens U.S. allies in Asia and the American mainland.
