N. Korea fires missile again
    2017-May-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    NORTH KOREA fired a ballistic missile yesterday in defiance of calls to rein in its weapons program, South Korean and U.S. officials said, days after a new leader took office in the South, pledging to engage it in dialog.

    The U.S. Pacific Command said it was assessing the type of missile but it was “not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile.” Japanese Defence Minister Tomomi Inada said the missile could be of a new type.

    The missile flew 700 km and reached an altitude of more than 2,000 km, according to officials in South Korea and Japan, further and higher than an intermediate-range missile North Korea successfully tested in February from the same region of Kusong, northwest of its capital, Pyongyang.

    North Korea is widely believed to be developing an intercontinental missile tipped with a nuclear weapon that is capable of reaching the United States. U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed not to let that happen.

    Experts said the test showed a considerably longer range than missiles North Korea had previously tested, meaning it had likely made improvements since its February test.

    The reported altitude would indicate the missile was launched at a high trajectory.
