SEOUL, Aug. 25 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's central television broadcasting station on Thursday aired the footage of the latest launch of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).

North Korea on Wednesday test-fired a SLBM in waters off its east coast near the port city of Sinpo. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has called the launch "the greatest success."

The South Korean military said the missile flew about 500 kilometers toward Japan, making the longest flight by such a missile launched by the North.
