North Korea fires missile over Japan

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean on Monday as it continues with its weapons’ test. Hide quoted text The Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe said it was an “unprecedented, serious and grave threat” while calling for an emergency UN Security Council meeting. The last time a North Korean rocket overflew Japan was in 2009, when Pyongyang said it was satellite launch. US, South Korea and Japan believed it was a clandestine test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Last month, North Korea carried out two overt ICBM tests that appeared to bring much of the US mainland within reach for the first time and heightened strains in the region. US President Donald Trump had at the time issued an apocalyptic warning of raining “fire and fury” on the North, saying Washington’s weapons were “locked and loaded.” Pyongyang threatened to fire a salvo of missiles over Japan towards the US territory of Guam. The latest missile was launched at around 2057 GMT Monday from Sunan, near Pyongyang, travelling “over Japan”, the South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said. It flew around 2 ,700 kilometres (1 ,700 miles) at a maximum altitude of around 550 kilometres. Guam is about 3 ,500 kilometres from North Korea — although the missile was fired in an easterly direction and not towards the US outpost, home to 160,000 people and host to major military facilities. Abe said the overflight was an “outrageous act” that “greatly damages regional peace and security,” telling reporters Tokyo had protested to Pyongyang.
