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 event was held on Sunday in Pyongyang after the massive military parade that took place in the capital city’s streets. A military choir and orchestra provided the musical aspects of the event. The footage of a February missile launch and pictures of Kim were also part of the video. The propaganda video then ends with the fake footage of missiles passing over the Pacific Ocean and exploding in the U.S.

According to the state-run KCNA news agency, at the end of the performance, the audience started cheering “hurrah!” Kim was then seen smiling and waving to the crowd. Earlier this week, North Korea attempted to test a ballistic missile but the trial failed when the missile exploded a few seconds after it was launched.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Ministry stated that it is concerned about the increased tensions in the region, especially after the U.S. said that military action against North Korea is an option.
