Fury after North Korea fires missile over Japan

A South Korean official said United States and South Korean authorities were continuing their analysis of Saturday's launch, which saw two missiles travel 250 kilometers (155 miles) over the ocean and another explode shortly after liftoff.

"I have to say your (US) president is not the most diplomatic man in the world and nor is the leader of North Korea, and together they may be the biggest threat to world peace since 1939", an interviewee told Tasnim correspondent in Washington.

The Pentagon confirmed Monday night USA time that officials from the North American Aerospace Defense Command detected a single missile shot fired from inside North Korea.

Japan warned citizens to seek refuge in shelters or solid buildings after reports emerged Monday that a missile fired by North Korea was headed toward the Tohuku region in the northern part of the country.

The short-range missiles were launched from eastern North Korea on Saturday after a month-long lull in provocations from Pyongyang.

Animosity between the two countries spiked earlier this month after North Korea warned it might fire missiles toward the USA territory of Guam in response to warlike rhetoric from Donald Trump.

North Korean missile launches generally follow South Korean and U.S. military exercises. The war games called the Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercises, prepare troops for a possible invasion from North Korea.


Guam is about 3,500 kilometres from North Korea - although the missile was sacked in an easterly direction and not towards the United States outpost, home to 160,000 people and host to major military facilities. It added that the American and S. Korean militaries are now analyzing the latest North Korean missile launch.

This was the first Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) missile test in August, after numerous commentators speculated that Pyongyang, Seoul, and Washington were closer to sitting down and seeking a diplomatic solution to the ongoing crisis than they had been for months.

North Korea has launched a series of short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast, according to the U.S. military, while South Korea and the Americans have been carrying out joint military drills. The North routinely says it will never give up its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes, saying they are necessary to counter perceived USA hostility.

The sensible thing is for the United States to refrain from reckless rhetoric now (N Korea's Kim starting to respect USA, says Trump; Aug 24). Tube launchers are cheaper and can fire multiple missiles at a time. For instance, in May 2017, Iran conducted a failed cruise missile test launch from a Ghadir-class "midget" submarine in the strategically vital Strait of Hormuz.

North Korea's United Nations ambassador, Ja Song Nam, writes in the letter that the exercises are "provocative and aggressive" when the Korean peninsula is "like a time bomb".

USA intelligence agencies were monitoring the site and had seen signs of the impending launch hours earlier, when they spotted Hwasong-12 missile equipment being moved into place.

What started as North Korea trying to be a tough guy in the fight has made them the laughing stock of military everywhere.
