North Korea says it has test-fired a new "tactical guided weapon" with a "powerful warhead", the first such test since talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un ended without agreement. State media gave few details, but analysts say this is unlikely to be a return to the long-range missile tests seen as a threat to the US. A similar test last November was viewed as an attempt to pressure the US. There has been little progress in nuclear talks since the last summit. In February, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un met in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi to discuss denuclearisation, but discussions broke down and both leaders left abruptly.

In other news,

A man has been arrested after walking into New York's St Patrick's Cathedral carrying two full petrol cans, lighter fluid and lighters, police say. They say guards confronted the 37-year-old as he entered the Manhattan church on Wednesday evening. He spilt gasoline on the ground and officers took him into custody. Deputy police commissioner John Miller noted that the "suspicious" incident occurred just two days after a fire gutted Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.
