Amid the growing tensions between North Korea and the U.S., the celebrations marking the 105th birthday of North Korea’s founding father Kim Il-sung continue.
New Footage from North Korea shows a musical performance in honor of this occasion, which North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and other senior level North Korean officials reportedly attended.
In the middle of the stage, a disturbing propaganda video showing American cities being destroyed by an atomic bomb and the U.S. flag going up in flames was played.
The video, which shows a missile attack destroying a US city, was shown as tensions between Kim Jong-un’s North Korea and the US continue to rise.
Kim used the ‘Day of the Sun’ festival, an event which marked the day of his late grandfather’s birthday, to show off his army and a worrying number of missiles.
Although, according to some reports, those missiles could actually be fakes. Rumours began circulating shortly after the images were released with many pointing out the fact that they were ‘obvious mock ups’.
