North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday with the ability to launch nuclear strikes on the entire U.S. mainland.

According to South Korean and Japanese estimates, the missile flew 620 miles with a maximum altitude of 3,600-3,790 miles.

During the launch, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un revealed his daughter to the world for the first time. Images showed the pair hand-in-hand at the site.

North Korea’s newspaper Rodong Sinmun published photos of Kim with his daughter. Kim’s wife, Ri Sol-Ju, could also be seen in the images.

The appearance of the leader’s daughter at this event could be hinting at a fourth-generation hereditary succession, Madden added.

North Korea’s recent missile test comes after China and Russia opposed U.S. moves to toughen U.N. sanctions to curb North Korea’s nuclear program.
