North Korea launches ballistic missile into sea
North Korea has fired a ballistic missile into the sea, South Korea’s defense minister has said.
The launch was first reported by the Japanese coast guard early on Wednesday, before being confirmed by defense authorities in Seoul later.
The UN prohibits North Korea from ballistic and nuclear weapons tests.
This is the first missile launch by Pyongyang after leader Kim Jong-Un pledged to bolster the country’s defense capabilities last month.
Seoul’s Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) said in a statement; “South Korean and US intelligence are closely analyzing for further detail,”
Japan’s defense minister Nobuo Kishi said the ballistic missile had flown about 500 km.
