NOKOR LAUNCHES MISSLES OVER JAPAN - NewspaperPH


North Korea has fired a missile over Japan which Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the "most serious and grave" threat to the country. The missile was fired just before 6 a.m. local time in Japan. The launch set off warnings in the northern part of the country urging people to seek shelter. It flew over Erimomisaki, on the northern island of Hokkaido, and broke into three pieces before falling into the Pacific Ocean, about 1,180 kilometers off the Japanese coast. "There is no immediate report of the fallen objects and no damage to the ships and aircraft," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at an emergency press conference. Japanese public broadcaster NHK said there was no sign of damage and the country’s military did not attempt to shoot the missile down. It flew 2700km, reaching an altitude of about 550km. The move sparked an angry response from Japan with chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga warning it posed a “serious, grave security threat” to his nation.
