North Korea fires suspected ballistic missile, Japan says
North Korea on Sunday launched a "suspected ballistic missile," Japan's Ministry of Defence reported.
The news follows a flurry of missile tests by North Korea, including the launch of a long-range ballistic missile last Thursday as leaders from South Korea and Japan met in Tokyo.
The Japan Coast Guard said in a statement published at 11.20am local time that the missile launched on Sunday appeared to have landed.
It cautioned all vessels to await further information; to not approach fallen objects; and to report anything suspicious.
