Photos and footages showing a North Korean missile launched from a submarine were manipulated by state propagandists, according to an analysis by a California-based think tank, says a report in Reuters.
North Korea, heavily sanctioned by the United States
and United Nations
for its missile and nuclear tests, may still be years away from developing the technology.
North Korean state television aired footage on Friday of the latest test, said to have taken place in December. Unlike a previous SLBM test in May, it had not been announced at the time.
North Korean propagandists used rudimentary editing techniques to crop and flip old video footage of an earlier submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) test and Scud missile
launch, the video analysis showed.
