BREAKING: North Korea Fires Unidentified Projectile
North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile near its west coast, Reuters reports.
The Reuters report reads:
North Korea fired on Sunday an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast, South Korea’s military said.
The nature of the projectile is not immediately clear, a South Korean military official said by telephone.
Yonhap news agency reported the projectile launched appeared to be a ballistic missile.
This is now North Korea’s 7th nuclear test. This is the first test in the two weeks following North Korea’s last failed nuclear test.
U.S. President Donald Trump warned in an interview with Reuters in late April that a “major, major conflict” with the North was possible, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute over its nuclear and missile programs.
