DailyMail: Kim Jong-Un has fired a ballistic missile 400 miles into the Sea of Japan in the latest show of force amid tensions with the US.
The nature of Sunday’s projectile is not immediately clear, a South Korean military official said, though local media reports that it appears to be a ballistic missile.
The launch took place at a region named Kusong located northwest of the capital, Pyongyang, where the North previously test-launched an intermediate-range missile it is believed to be developing.
The projectile was launched at around 5.30am and flew about 435 miles, according to South Korea’s Joint Chief of Staff.
‘The South and US are analyzing more details about the missile,’ it said in a statement without elaborating.
