South Korea's military says North Korea fired an unidentified missile from its capital Pyongyang in a continuation of weapons tests following its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date on September 3.The missile flew over Japan and splashed down in the Pacific about 2,000km to the east off Hokkaido, according to Japanese media. Japanese residents received alerts warning them to take shelter. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the missile was launched from Sunan, the site of Pyongyang's international airport.The South Korean and U.S. militaries are analysing details of the launch, the South's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.The North last month used the airport to fire a Hwasong-12 intermediate range missile that flew over northern Japan in what it declared as a "meaningful prelude" to containing the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam and the start of more ballistic missile launches targeting the Pacific Ocean.
The launch was deemed an intermediate range ballistic missile and demonstrated a threat with a range of 3,700 km. The UN already plans to have a meeting tomorrow about this. NK talking heads got in front of the camera vowing to attack us and Japan in retalliation for recent sanctions by the US.
