PYONGYANG, North Korea, April 15 (UPI) -- A North Korean propaganda video threatening a missile strike against Colorado Springs, Colo., misidentifies the city's location by about 1,000 miles.

The video, released by the state-run media organization Uriminzokkiri, threatens the country could launch its KN-08 missiles at Washington, Los Angeles, Honolulu and Colorado Springs, but the spot on the map where it places Colorado Springs is actually somewhere in the vicinity of Shreveport, La., approximately 900 miles south of the labeled location, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

The Post said the KN-08 missile is untested and North Korea has not demonstrated the ability to reach the U.S. mainland with the weapon.
