North Korea fires another ballistic missile over Japan

US, China divided over North Korea new missile threat

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile across Japan, creating new tension in the region after its nuclear bomb test less than two weeks ago.

South Korea’s military says the missile reached an altitude of about 770 kilometres, travelling 3,700 kilometres before landing in the sea off Hokkaido

It flew higher and further than one fired over Japan late last month.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his country would “never tolerate” such “dangerous provocative action”.

South Korea responded within minutes by firing two ballistic missiles into the sea in a simulated strike on the north.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also condemned the launch and the United Nations Security Council will meet later on Friday in New York at the request of America and Japan.
