N. Korea Posts Simulation Video Depicting New York Set Ablaze
North Korea, poised to conduct a nuclear test any day now, has posted a video on YouTube depicting a US city resembling New York engulfed in flames after an apparent missile attack.
The footage was uploaded Saturday by the North's official website, Uriminzokkiri, which distributes news and propaganda from the state media, AFP reported.
The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested in December.
