North Korea launches second IRBM in 4 hours

North's sixth Musudan missile flies over 400 kilometers

North Korea launched a second Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) from its east coast just over three hours after another Musudan launch Wednesday morning, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff reported that the second missile was launched at 8:05 a.m. from near North Korea’s east coast port city of Wonsan, the same location from which the first was launched.
