North Korea Missile Threat: Old problems, new solutions?

Early on Tuesday morning, North Korean state media announced that the secretive Communist country had for the very first time successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, which experts call a "game changer" as it could potentially strike the United States mainland.

Produced by Charles WENTE, François WIBAUX and Christopher DAVIS.
