North Korea fires missile: South Korea military

Sunday's launch, at 5:27 a.m. Seoul time (2027 GMT Saturday), came two weeks after North Korea fired a missile that disintegrated minutes into flight, marking its fourth consecutive failure since March. According to a USA official, Sunday's missile landed 60 miles (95 kilometers) south of Russia's Vladivostok region, home to the Russian Pacific Fleet.

Experts said the altitude the missile tested on Sunday reached meant it was launched at a high trajectory, which would limit the lateral distance it traveled. Japanese officials said it reached an unusually high altitude of 1,240 miles, which could indicate a new type of missile. The launch served as a call for all nations to implement stronger sanctions against North Korea, it added.

The missile impacted "so close to Russian soil - in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan - the president can not imagine that Russia is pleased". Experts said Sunday's test showed a considerably longer range than missiles North Korea had previously tested, meaning it had likely made improvements since its February test.
