North Korea fires suspected ballistic missile, second in a week
Aljazeera says North Korea fired what may have been a ballistic missile on Tuesday morning, Japan and South Korea said, less than a week after Pyongyang tested what it said was a hypersonic weapon.
“Our military detected a suspected ballistic missile fired by North Korea from land towards the East Sea at around 7.27am (22:27 GMT on Monday) today,” Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The launch was also reported by Japan’s coast guard, which said the North had fired a “ballistic missile-like object”.
