Kim Jong-un scales North Korea's highest mountain, state media claims
North Korea's state-run media says leader Kim Jong-un has climbed the highest mountain in the country.
Photographs show Kim standing on top of a snow-covered mountain as the sun rises behind him, which the Korean Central News Agency claims is the 2,744-metre (9,003-foot) Mount Paektu.
"Climbing Mount Paektu provides precious mental pabulum more powerful than any kind of nuclear weapon", Kim was quoted as saying after his feat,
Paektu is an active volcano on the border between North Korea and China.
