Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff didn't immediately confirm what type of missile was fired Thursday or how far the weapon flew. The launch came a day after North Korea fired more than 20 missiles, the most it has fired in a single day ever. One of those missile flew in the direction of a populated South Korean island and landed near the rivals' tense sea border, triggering air raid sirens and forcing residents in Ulleung island to evacuate. South Korea quickly responded by launching its own missiles in the same border area.

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Tuesday fired a ballistic missile over Japan, its neighbors said, escalating tests of weapons designed to strike key targets in regional U.S. allies amid stalled nuclear diplomacy. The Japanese prime minister's office said at least one missile fired from North Korea flew over Japan and was believed to have landed into the Pacific Ocean. It said authorities have issued an alert to residents in northeastern regions to evacuate buildings nearby in what was reportedly the first such alert in five years. Trains were temporarily suspended in Japan's Hokkaido and Aomori regions before their operations were resumed later after a government notice that the North Korean missile appeared to have landed into the Pacific.

    By KIM TONG-HYUNG SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea fired a short-range ballistic missile Sunday toward its eastern seas, extending a provocative streak in weapons testing as a U.S. aircraft carrier visits South Korea for joint military exercises in response to the North’s growing nuclear threat. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile launched from the western inland town of Taechon flew 600 kilometers (370 miles) cross-country on a maximum altitude of 60 kilometers (37 miles) before landing in waters off North Korea’s eastern coast. South Korea’s military condemned North Korea’s launch as a “serious provocation” that violates U.N. Security Council resolutions and “damages the peace and safety” of the region and the broader international community. The U.S. Indo-Pacific Command said the launch did not pose an “immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies,” but still highlighted the destabilizing impact of North Korea’s illicit nuclear weapons and missile programs. North Korea has dialed up its testing activities to a record pace in 2022, testing more than 30 ballistic weapons, including its first intercontinental...
    (CNN)North Korea said it test fired a new type of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) Wednesday, a day after Pyongyang and Washington agreed to resume nuclear talks. The launch marks a departure from the tests of shorter range missiles North Korea has carried out in recent months.State-run Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) reported the new-type of SLBM was a "Pukguksong-3." "The new-type ballistic missile was fired in vertical mode," KCNA said. "The test-firing scientifically and technically confirmed the key tactical and technical indexes of the newly-designed ballistic missile and had no adverse impact on the security of neighboring countries."The launch came as the US and North Korea are to begin working level talks in Stockholm, Sweden beginning Friday October 4, a source with knowledge of the plans told CNN Thursday.Read MoreThe North Koreans "sense an opportunity" right now, perceiving US President Donald Trump as "politically vulnerable" and "starving for a win," the source said.

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea fired at least one unidentified projectile toward its eastern sea on Saturday, South Korea’s military said, in its second launch this week, apparently continuing a provocative streak in weapons demonstrations that may culminate with a nuclear test in the coming weeks or months. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff didn’t immediately say whether the projectile was ballistic or how far it flew. The launch came three days after South Korea and Japan’s militaries detected the North firing a suspected ballistic missile from near its capital, Pyongyang, on Wednesday, and three days before the inauguration of South Korean President-elect Yoon Suk Yeol, who has vowed to take a tougher approach over the North’s nuclear ambitions. The latest launch was likely North Korea’s 15th round of missile firings this year, an unusually fast pace that experts say underscores a brinkmanship aimed at forcing the United States to accept the idea of the North as a nuclear power and remove crippling sanctions. There are also signs that the North is restoring tunnels at a nuclear...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea fired at least one suspected ballistic missile toward the sea Thursday, its neighbors’ militaries said, apparently extending its barrage of weapons tests that may culminate with a flight of its biggest-yet intercontinental ballistic missile. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff didn’t immediately say whether the weapon involved in the launch was ballistic or how far it flew. Japan’s Prime Minster’s Office Defense Ministry said the North fired a possible ballistic missile. It was North Korea’s 12th round of weapons launches this year and came after it fired suspected artillery pieces into the sea on Sunday. Experts say the North’s unusually fast pace in testing activity underscore its dual goal of advancing its weaponry and applying pressure on Washington over a deepening freeze in nuclear negotiations. The North conducted two medium-range tests from near its capital area in recent weeks that the U.S. and South Korean militaries later assessed as involving components of the North’s largest ICBM, the Hwasong-17, which they said could be tested at full range soon.

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has fired at least one suspected ballistic missile into the sea, according to its neighbors’ militaries, apparently extending its streak of weapons tests this year amid a prolonged freeze in nuclear negotiations with the United States. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff on Saturday said the weapon was fired toward the country’s eastern waters but didn’t immediately say how far it flew. Japan’s Defense Ministry said the weapon was possibly ballistic. It was the North’s ninth round of weapons launches in 2022 as it continues to use a pause in diplomacy to expand its military capabilities while attempting to pressure the Biden administration for concessions. Nuclear disarmament talks between Washington and Pyongyang have been stalled since 2019 over disagreements about exchanging crippling U.S.-led sanctions against the North for the North taking steps to wind down its nuclear and missile programs.

South Korea's military and Japan's coast guard reported that the North had fired an "unidentified projectile" toward the ocean off its east coast. 1North Korea appears to have launched its fourth ballistic missile this yearCredit: AP Since New Year's Day, North Korea has conducted three other tests, an unusual frequency of weapons tests. Two of those launches involved single "hypersonic missiles" capable of high speeds and manoeuvring after launch, while the last, on Friday, involved a pair of short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs) fired from train cars. It was not immediately known what kind of missile was involved in Monday's reported launch. The series of launches prompted U.S. President Joe Biden's administration to impose its first sanctions against Pyongyang on Wednesday, and to call on the U.N.

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea fired at least one projectile into the sea on Monday, South Korea’s military said, in a fourth weapons launch this month as it demonstrates its military might amid pandemic border closures and paused diplomacy with the United States. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff didn’t immediately say whether the weapon was ballistic or how far it flew. The launch came after the North conducted a pair of flight tests of a purported hypersonic missile on Jan. 5 and Jan. 11 and also test-fired ballistic missiles from a train Friday in an apparent reprisal over fresh sanctions imposed by the Biden administration last week for its continuing test launches. North Korea has been ramping up tests in recent months of new missiles designed to overwhelm missile defenses in the region. Some experts say North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is going back to a tried-and-true technique of pressuring the U.S. and regional neighbors with missile launches and outrageous threats before offering negotiations meant to extract concessions.

    RUSSIA has boasted a ballistic missile hit its target with “unprecedented accuracy” during tests. The Iskanker-E missile was being tested for a mysterious foreign customer, the missile’s manufacturer said. 2The Iskander missile hit the 'crosshairs' of its targetCredit: Getty The Iskander family of missiles are designed to hit targets at relatively short distances and are deployed against Nato forces. During its test it hit the “crosshairs” of a target 110 miles away, the head of Russia’s ‘Rostec’ missile maker Bekhan Ozdoev told Russia’s RIA Novosti. He said “this was confirmed by the cameras installed around the target” and the state-owned news agency said this represented “unprecedented accuracy”. “The products of Rostec enterprises once again proved to be extremely positive," Ozdoev said. The missiles are launched from a vehicle with a three man crew and have a range of just over 300 miles. They weigh four tons and 23 feet long with the warhead able to be controlled in flight, says the  Center for Strategic and International Studies says.  Most read in The US SunMEGA STORM Live updates with BRUTAL cyclone...

    North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast, it is believed, after the South's military said an 'unidentified projectile' had been launched. No further details were immediately available from the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff. The launch comes just days after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's influential sister Kim Yo Jong, a key adviser to her brother, dangled the prospect of an inter-Korean summit. But she insisted that 'impartiality' and mutual respect would be required, calling for the South to 'stop spouting an impudent remark'. She condemned as 'double standards' Southern and US criticism of the North's military developments, while the allies build up their own capacities. North Korea had fired two ballistic missiles into waters inside Japan's exclusive economic zone on September 15 in another escalation of tensions in the region.    North Korea has fired an 'unidentified projectile' into the sea off its east coast, the South's military said Tuesday (picture: File image, a previous launch) RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next BREAKING NEWS: Republicans BLOCK bill to avoid...
    North Korea has unveiled a new train-based missile system which it used to fire missiles at test targets close to Japan on Wednesday. The missiles were launched from a new 'railway-borne missile system' designed as a potential counter-strike to any forces that threaten the country, state news agency KCNA reported on Thursday. The missiles flew 497 miles before striking a target in the sea of Japan off North Korea's east coast, KCNA said.  South Korean and Japanese authorities were alerted to the test launch which came just days after North Korea tested another nuclear-capable cruise missile this past weekend. Meanwhile, on the same day as North Korea tested its train-based launch system, South Korea in kind tested a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), and in doing so became the first country without nuclear weapons to develop such a system.

    North Korea has test-fired two ballistic missiles just days after firing a new kind of cruise missile with possible nuclear capabilities. South Korea's military said the two missiles were fired from an unknown inland location before coming down somewhere near the east coast. The move is likely designed as a provocation to Joe Biden and other world leaders, as ballistic missiles violate UN resolutions on the North's weapons programme and are likely to trigger a diplomatic response. It also comes two weeks after Kim Jong Un restarted a nuclear reactor at Yongbyon which had been shut down during negotiations with Donald Trump.  Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called Wednesday's launch 'outrageous', saying it threatened peace and security in the region. 'North Korea fired two unidentified ballistic missiles from its central inland region toward the east coast, and intelligence authorities of South Korea and the United States are conducting detailed analysis for further information,' South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

    North Korea has fired what is believed to be a ballistic missile, Japan's Coast Guard said on Wednesday - its first under the Biden administration, and a move likely to increase tensions after it fired its first cruise missiles at the weekend. The NHK news service reported the Japanese findings on Wednesday. U.N. Security Council resolutions ban North Korea from engaging in any ballistic activities, but not cruise missile tests. Cruise missiles fly at a lower altitude and slower speed than ballistic missiles, making them easier to intercept, but they are still considered more accurate.  It Wednesday's missiles are confirmed to be ballistic, it will mark a significant increase in hostilities.  Pyongyang fired two short-range missiles on Sunday, just days after the sister of Kim Jong Un threatened the United States and South Korea for holding joint military exercises.
