Japan’s government strongly protests to Pyongyang and condemns launch but says there were no reports of damage
North Korea has fired another missile off its east coast, South Korea’s military has said, as the regime seeks to build nuclear-tipped ICBMs that can reach the US mainland.
The missile landed inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan. Yoshihide Suga, a spokesman for the Japanese government, said it had strongly protested to Pyongyang about the launch. There were no reports of damage, he added.
