• News Alert: North Korea launches projectile

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Mon Aug 28 16:24:27 2017
    North Korea has launched a missile that flew over Japan, the Pentagon confirmed Monday.[1]

    The launch occurred at 5:57 a.m. local time. Japan's Chief Cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga said the missile passed over the Erimo Cape of Hokkaido. It is estimated to have fallen in the Pacific Ocean, about 1,180 km east of the Erimo Cape.

    "We have to say that this morning's launch by the North is the most serious and grave threat ever to us, as the missile seems to have passed through our airspace," Suga told reporters at a news conference, according to Japan's NHK public broadcaster. "It could endanger peace and security in the Asia-Pacific region. It is also very dangerous and problematic in terms of the traffic safety of planes and ships. The launch is an obvious violation of UN resolutions. We cannot tolerate these repeated provocations by the North. We condemn this in the strongest possible way."
