In its latest, and most potentially dangerous, political warning to the United States, Japan and South Korea – and one that occurred as Americans were preparing to celebrate Independence Day – North Korea successfully launched a ballistic missile Tuesday that it claimed was intercontinental and capable of hitting parts of the U.S. While it’s difficult to confirm many details about what happened because independent journalists were not given access to cover the event, POLITICO has gathered some of the behind-the-scenes photos released by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency and from photojournalists capturing reaction on the ground in North Korea, South Korea and Japan.
