North Korea confirms test-firing rocket launcher system

North Korea said Saturday that leader Kim Jong Un supervised a test of a new multiple rocket launcher system on Friday to check its altitude control level flight performance, track changing capability, accuracy of hitting a target and warhead explosion power.

The report said Kim expressed great satisfaction over the tests.

Experts say the North's increased testing activity is aimed at ramping up pressure on Washington and Seoul over stalled nuclear negotiations with the US and US-South Korea military exercises planned for this month.
