North Korea has apparently launched a missile that landed in Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the Sea of Japan.
The Japan Times reported:
North Korea fired off an unidentified missile Monday morning that landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, the latest in a spate of ramped-up test-firings that have unnerved the region.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference that the missile, launched around 5:40 a.m., appeared to have have fallen into Japan’s exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan.
Suga said Japan had issued a strong protest with the North, calling the launch a clear violation of United Nations resolutions.
The missile was fired from the eastern coastal city of Wonsan, according to a statement released by South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.To read more, go here.
