The U.S. mainland is now ‘within striking range’ of North Korea after a successful ballistic missile test, the authoritarian nation’s state news agency said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un hailed yesterday’s submarine-launched missile test as the ‘greatest success’ and was seen celebrating with generals shortly afterwards.

The missile was fired from a submarine submerged off the northeastern port of Simpo, flying 300 miles towards Japan – far exceeding the range of any previous tests.

The UN met last night but is yet to publicly condemned the launch, which is effectively a test of Pyongyang’s nuclear strike capability.
