Japan’s NHK mistakenly flashes missile alert
TOKYO: Japan’s public broadcaster on Tuesday mistakenly flashed that North Korea appeared to have launched a missile, warning people to take cover before apologising for the error only minutes later. A news alert saying: “It appears North Korea launched a missile... ‘Evacuate inside buildings or underground’: government” was published by the NHK website and app at 6:55 pm local time. But after just five minutes, NHK admitted the alert was sent in error.
