Kim Jong Un attends concert feting N Korea missile launch

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has attended a concert replete with pop music and thunderous applause to fete the successful launch of his country's first intercontinental ballistic missile.

Leading the bill at Monday's concert was the Moranbong Band, an all-female ensemble that was hand-picked by Kim and serves as something of the "soft" face of his regime.

Pyongyang has been the scene of a slew of special events to mark the July 4 launch of Hwasong-14, which is believed to be capable of reaching most of Alaska and possibly further.

The concert, played before a packed crowd, many in uniform, also featured dancing.

Clips of it shown on North Korean television showed the crowd repeatedly cheering and applauding for Kim.
