At least seven people were killed and 67 injured in a Russian nighttime missile strike on a city in Ukraine's eastern region of Donetsk, local authorities said early on Tuesday.
Germany is considering sending "Taurus" guided missiles to Ukraine. What can these systems do?
Kim Jong Un's call to mass produce missiles comes shortly before South Korea and the US start annual military drills.
It's the first time that Pyongyang has commented on the case after US soldier Travis King dashed into North Korea on July 18. Media reports suggest the soldier was unhappy with an "unequal American society."
The UN rights chief said Pyongyang was using resources for its nuclear program even as people failed to access basic necessities. This was the first meeting on North Korea by the UN Security Council in six years.
South Korean authorities linked a hacking attempt to a North Korean group known as Kimsuky, but added that no classified military information was compromised.
Beijing green-lighted the resumption of North Korea's Air Koryo flights between the two countries. The move comes as they both ease travel restrictions after strict COVID measures.
Pyongyang said the second attempt to launch a spy satellite failed at the third stage of the flight of the rocket but would try again in October. South Korea, Japan and the US have all reacted.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has said US, South Korean and Japanese military exercises have turned the Korean peninsula into the world's "biggest war hardware concentration spot."
The drill took place just as the joint exercises conducted by Seoul and Washington concluded. Pyongyang's intent was to show strength and "warn enemies."
Pyongyang has carried out a series of unprecedented military drills and threatened to use nuclear weapons in an invasion of South Korea. It's partly encouraged by closer alliances with Russia and China, experts say.
