THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: North Korea launched a missile


The Japanese government says that North Korea has launched what is believed to be an ICBM on Sunday morning, ahead of the planned Monday launch schedule. Officials verified that one projectile was fired from the western coast of the Korean Peninsula heading south at around 0931 Hours Japan Time.

The so-called ballistic missile was split into five parts. One fell into the Yellow Sea about 150km west while the other two landed in the East China Sea about 250km southwest. They estimate another part flew through Japanese airspace over Okinawa and dropped to the Pacific Ocean, about 2,000km south of Japan. A fifth part also went over Japanese airspace and continued southward.
