North Korea Launches Another Missile Into Sea of Japan

Published on May 21, 2017

North Korea has fired an ‘unspecified missile’ in a latest act of aggression, according to military sources.

A South Korean news agency are claiming that the projectile took off from a location near Pukchang.

However, NHK News, a Japanese new agency, claims the missile ‘fell into the Sea of Japan’.

South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the projectile was launched on Sunday afternoon (local time).

The South Korean military added that the missile flew “about 500 kilometers (310 miles)” and was believed to have landed in waters off its east coast.

Foreign ministry officials for the republic have condemned the north’s behaviour, calling it “irresponsible and reckless”.
