North Korea claims to have successfully tested a long-range missile that it says can reach anywhere in the world. The launch came under the orders of leader Kim Jong Un, reaching a height of over 2800 kilometres, according to the state's official broadcaster. That would make it the highest altitude ever reached by a North Korean missile, and some analysts believe the timing was intentional to coincide with the American 4th of July holiday.
