Military parade in North Korea. Intercontinental ballistic missiles being displayed during a military parade in Pyongyang marking the 105th birthday of Kim Il-Sung, the founder of North Korea. These are thought to be KN-08 missiles, capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, with a range of around 5500 kilometres. This parade is taking place in Kim Il-sung Square, passing the headquarters of the Workers' Party of Korea. North Korea is a socialist state with totalitarian rule and a cult of personality around Kim Il-sung and his family who have ruled the country for over 70 years. The third leader from the ruling dynasty is Kim Jong-un (grandson of Kim Il-Sung), who has ruled since December 2011. Photographed on 15 April 2017.
