Japs’ mis­sile warn­ing er­ror

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

JA­PAN’S pub­lic broad­caster mis­tak­enly sent an alert warn­ing cit­i­zens of a North Korean mis­sile launch and urg­ing them to seek im­me­di­ate shel­ter, then re­tracted it min­utes later – just days af­ter a sim­i­lar er­ror in Hawaii.

NHK tele­vi­sion is­sued the mes­sage yes­ter­day on its in­ter­net and mo­bile news sites as well as on Twit­ter, say­ing North Korea ap­peared to have fired a mis­sile at Ja­pan.

The false alarm came two days af­ter Hawaii’s emer­gency man­age­ment team sent a mis­taken warn­ing of a North Korean mis­sile attack.
