South Korea Military Says North Fires Ballistic Missile

North Korea fired at least one ballistic missile yesterday towards the East Sea, also known as the Sea of Japan, according to Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The test comes as Seoul and Washington warned Pyongyang that any nuclear attack on the United States and South Korea would result in the end of the North Korean regime.

The two allies held their second session of the Nuclear Consultative Group in Washington last Friday, where they discussed nuclear deterrence in the event of conflict with the North.

The launch also comes as Pyongyang marks the anniversary of the death of leader Kim Jong Un’s father and predecessor, Kim Jong-il, who died on December 17, 2011.

Last month Pyongyang successfully put a military spy satellite into orbit. It has since claimed its eye in the sky was already providing images of major US and South Korean military sites.
