As North Korean state media threatens more military action, a new video claims to showcase the latest ballistic missile send off over Japan.

The video was released by the Korean Central News Agency on Wednesday and shows a powerful missile careening through the sky.

KCNA also reported that North Korea leader Kim Jong Un was "very satisfied with the performance of the missile," and that this lunch was "the first step of the military operation of the [North Korean military] in the Pacific and a meaningful prelude to containing Guam."
