North Korea launches another ballistic missile into the sea outside the country

North Korea launched another ballistic missile towards the Sea of ​​Japan. This is what the General Staff of the South Korean Army says. The Japanese Coast Guard also earlier reported a possible ballistic missile. The launch came just hours after the United States warned North Korea of ​​new nuclear tests.

According to the South Korean military, Pyongyang launched the missile from a submarine or an underwater platform off the coast of the coastal city of Sinpo. It would be a short range missile. Water projectiles are difficult to detect.

United Nations resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

North Korea has tested several missiles since the beginning of the year, among them a long-range missile. North Korea also tested a ballistic missile last Wednesday that, according to South Korea and Japan, flew 780 kilometers into space before landing in the sea. Exactly what kind it was, remained shrouded in mystery.

Pyongyang has been subject to severe international sanctions as a result of its nuclear weapons program.
