Breaking: North Korea Tests Ballistic Missile


North Korea tested a ballistic missile early Sunday morning, raising new fears in the region, CNN reports. 

This latest provocation from the North sent a missile higher in altitude and closer to Russia than any of its earlier tests, said officials.

The missile was launched near Kusong in western North Korea, and flew across the country before crashing into the Sea of Japan.

US officials confirmed that it landed about 60 miles from Vladivostok in eastern Russia.

According to Japanese officials, the missile reached as high as 1,240 miles and flew for an estimated 30 minutes.

“It is possibly a new type of missile,” said Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada.

David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists, noted that according to data from the flight, it is estimated that the missile could reach the US territory of Guam in the Pacific.

Guam is home to Andersen Air Forde Base, out of which flies heavy bombers, including B-1s, B-2s and B-52s.

More to come from this developing story.

Please pray for our troops in the region.
