North Korea Claims Spy Satellite Photographed U.S. Military Bases and Suez Canal

SEOUL - North Korea announced that its military spy satellite, Malligyong-1, successfully captured images of key international locations, including U.S. military facilities.

According to Yonhap News Agency, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reviewed the satellite images at the Pyongyang General Control Center of the National Aerospace Technology Administration.

The satellite reportedly photographed the San Diego Naval Base in California, the Kadena Air Force Base in Japan's Okinawa Prefecture, and the Suez Canal in Egypt. These images were taken at various times on Wednesday.

North Korea's successful launch of the Malligyong-1 satellite on the Chollima-1 rocket follows two previous unsuccessful attempts earlier this year. The country has expressed intentions to launch several more satellites shortly.

In addition to these recent images, North Korea claims to have captured satellite photos of significant U.S. locations, including the White House and the Pentagon, as well as major military installations in South Korea, Guam, and Hawaii. However, North Korea has not released these specific satellite photos to the public.
