PYONGYANG, Aug. 7 -- Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), watched the demonstration fire of new-type tactical guided missiles at daybreak Tuesday, sending an adequate warning to the U.S.-South Korea joint military drill underway, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Wednesday.

The report said two tactical guided missiles flied across the sky over the capital area and the central inland region of the country to precisely hit the targeted islet in the East Sea of Karea, which were launched at the operational airfield in the western area of the country.
