North Korea has fired two missiles in Kim Jong-un's latest show of force - and one was a new type that flew almost 435 miles before crashing into the sea.

The missiles were launched from Wonsan - a city on the eastern coast - as Pyongyang carried out its first test since its leader and US President Donald Trump agreed to resume talks about denuclearisation and sanctions.

With one projectile travelling almost 435 miles, it was one of the furthest distances a North Korean missile has flown during a drill.

Kim's test - the second in three months - risks further escalating tensions in the area and threatens to derail talks after he and Trump met at the demilitarised zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas at the end of June.
