North Korea military parades through Pyongyang

Country puts on show of weapons, troops

PYONGYANG, North Korea — Goose-stepping soldiers, columns of tanks, and missiles on mobile launchers paraded through Pyongyang’s main square on Saturday in a military pageant intended to strike fear into North Korea’s adversaries on the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War.

The lavish assembly of weapons and troops is reminiscent of the marches held by the Soviet Union and China at the height of the Cold War. It is one of the few chances the world gets to see North Korea’s military up close.
