North Korea Fires Several Missiles Into the Sea of Japan
North Korea has reportedly launched several missiles into the Sea of Japan, three of which have landed in Japanese waters.
Earlier, the Yonhap news agency reported that North Korea had fired a single “unidentified projectile” off the country’s east coast. After reviewing data, the South Korean military revised the count to four projectiles, Reuters reported.
The military is trying to determine the type of rocket that was tested, but the South Korean agency has already cited an unnamed military official as saying it “could” have been an intercontinental ballistic missile “capable of reaching the US mainland.”
“South Korea and the United States are conducting a close-up analysis, regarding further information,” South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The projectiles were launched early Monday morning at 7:36 am local time from the Dongchang-ri long-range missile site, Yonhap reported citing S. Korea’s military. The unidentified objects flew across the country for about 1,000 kilometers before plunging into the East Sea.

North Korea has been developing their nuclear capabilities for decades. They have repeatedly taunted the world by launching missiles, some of which are rumored to be intercontinental ballistic missiles. The Pentagon condemned North Korea’s missile launches last month; something has to be done about North Korea.
