North Korea launches another missile toward Japan

North Korea has reportedly launched a missile toward Japan, according to reports from South Korea.

The US was analyzing the details of the launch, along with the South Korean military.

The nuclear-armed North has criticized recent sanctions imposed against them by the United Nations. It was not clear whether the launch was another test.

But the Japanese government told its citizens to stay indoor as a possible missile fired from North Korea flew over the nation and into the Pacific Ocean.

NHK reported said that the missile likely flew over the Hokkaido region of Japan early Friday morning. They were warning citizens that debris could still fall on the island nation.

South Korea’s news agency Yonhap reported that a missile was launched from near Pyongyang.

The Japanese government said that it did not attempt to intercept the missile.

This is the second missile fired from North Korea over Japan in the last month. On August 29, a missile fired from North Korea flew over Japan.

The missile launch comes just days after the UN placed sanctions on North Korea for its testing of atomic weapons. On September 3, a large artificial earthquake was detected in North Korea, and North Korea state TV claimed the nation had successfully tested an atomic bomb.
