SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea announced that it has test-fired a new type of tactical guided weapon.

The Korean Central News Agency says Chairman Kim Jong Un observed the firing of the weapon Wednesday by the Academy of Defense Science.

The agency reports that Kim said “the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army.”

The agency says Kim mounted an observation post to learn about the test-fire of the new-type tactical guided weapon and guide the test-fire.

The announcement came after reports of new activity at a North Korean missile research center and long-range rocket site where the North is believed to build long-range missiles targeting the U.S. mainland.

The White House said it was aware of the report and had no comment.

The Associated Press could not immediately and independently verify North Korea’s claim.

A hard-copy of the redacted of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will be made available to members of Congress at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Congressional sources told NBC News.

That means the document will be handed over 90 minutes after Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have a press conference about the contents of the 300-plus page report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign.

Democrats blasted the timing as political, with House Judiciary chair Jerry Nadler calling the timing “troubling.”

President Donald Trump has repeatedly blasted the probe as a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.”

This is a developing story; check back for updates.
