    North Korean media claimed on Saturday that the country had tested a "a new type of anti-aircraft guided weapon," NBC News reported.

    The country's state-run KCNA said that Kim Jong Un watched the test and that defects in the system have been fixed.

    Reports of the new test come amid heightened tensions in the Korean peninsula and following international condemnation of several banned ballistic missile tests carried out so far this year.

    Experts say some of the North's claims about its anti-aircraft systems are doubtful and that the latest claim may be an exaggeration.

    [NATL] Man Visits Disneyland 2,000 Times In a Row

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
