North Korea Fires Another Missile Over Japan

By

North Korea fired another missile on Friday, its 15th test this year, according to South Korea’s military. Like its last test, on Aug. 28, the projectile flew over Japan. The Japanese government issued an alert via TV and cellphones, warning people to take shelter. Japan said the missile landed in the sea 1,200 miles east of the island of Hokkaido. The test came after a wave of relief last weekend, when a launch South Korea said Pyongyang was preparing failed to occur. The latest test came days after the United Nations Security Council unanimously imposed the toughest economic sanctions yet aiming to punish North Korea for its refusal to rein in its missile and nuclear weapons programs.
