Watch: N. Korean video shows Obama in flames
Against backdrop of increasing UN sanctions aimed at Pyongyang, North Korea issues propaganda video that presents US president, American troops on fire, nuclear device explosion
A new North Korean video portrays President Barack Obama and American troops in flames and says the North conducted its recent nuclear test because of US hostility.


The video follows a string of critical rhetoric against the United States. Another video posted earlier this month showed an American city being attacked by missiles.
