North Korea launches missile over Japan

North Korea launched another missile, this time over Japan Tuesday, South Korea’s military said.

The “unidentified projectile” from the North was fired into the Japan’s East Sea around 5:57 a.m. local time, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

South Korea didn’t say where the missile landed or how far it traveled. 

Japanese state media tweeted urging people to evacuate to nearby buildings or find shelter underground.


The launch comes as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea intensify.


The launch comes days after North Korea set off three missiles into Japan’s sea Saturday despite President Trump’s “fire and fury” warning. 

North Korea has also threatened to attack the American-territory of Guam amid tensions of nuclear war between the U.S. and Kim Jong-un’s regime.
