N.Korea launches mid-range missile from northwest region

North Korea conducts missile test after several month refrain from testing

North Korea launched a midrange ballistic missile towards the East Sea, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced early on Sunday morning local time, coinciding with a dinner event between U.S. President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Florida.

The missile, which was launched at Panghyon from North Phyongan Province at 0755 KST and traveled around 500km after a rapid vertical ascent of 550km, appears likely to have been a Musudan-type missile.
