Reuters reported that North Korea fired another missile around 6:00 PM ET. That would have been early Friday morning local time.
According to South Korea's military, North Korea fired the missile from the Sunan district in the country's capital, Pyongyang. The Joint Chiefs of Staff said both the South Korean and U.S. militaries are analyzing details of the launch, added Reuters.
The missile flew over Japan, Japan’s NHK television said. According to BBC News, Japan has warned its citizens to take cover.
Anna Fifield of the Washington Post tweeted that the ICBM set off alarms in Japan. She also noted that the missile "landed in the Pacific Ocean about 1,200 miles east of Hokkaido."
In response to the missile, South Korea’s presidential Blue House called an urgent National Security Council meeting.
North Korea's launch has disturbing timing. The missile comes only a day after the Communist Country threatened to attack Japan to make it "sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche," and threatened to reduce the United States to “ashes and darkness."
This is the second time in the last few weeks that North Korea has threatened Japan. They launched a ballistic missile over Japan on August 29th.
