Japan says North Korea has launched a suspected missile towards the ocean.
Japan’s coast guard stated it confirmed that what seemed to be a North Korean missile was fired Sunday morning.
Additional launch particulars weren’t instantly accessible, it stated.
South Korea’s Yonhap information company cited the South’s army as saying that North Korea had fired a ballistic missile towards its japanese waters.
Calls to the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff weren’t instantly answered on Sunday.
The launch, if confirmed, can be the North’s fourth spherical of weapons exams for the reason that U.S. and South Korean militaries started joint army drills final week.
The North views the drills as an invasion rehearsal.
