North Korea fires mis­sile over Ja­pan in long­est-ever flight

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea fired an in­ter­me­di­at­erange mis­sile over Ja­pan into the north­ern Pa­cific Ocean on Fri­day, U.S. and South Korean mil­i­taries said, its long­est-ever such flight and a clear mes­sage of de­fi­ance to its ri­vals.

Since President Don­ald Trump threat­ened the North with "fire and fury" in Au­gust, Py­ongyang has con­ducted its most pow­er­ful nu­clear test, threat­ened to send mis­siles into the wa­ters around Guam and launched two mis­siles of in­creas­ing range over U.S. ally Ja­pan. It tested its first-ever in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­siles in July.
