North Korea Fires Ballistic Missile Close To Japan: Officials

From March to May, the regime conducted tests every one to two weeks.

"We will take care of that situation", Trump told White House pool reporters in the Roosevelt Room during some hastily scheduled face time with members of the media. The latest test marks the 15th ballistic missile test since Trump took office.

And Hawaii's warnings about a possible nuclear attack have been understandably grim.

"The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America, our territories or our allies", Manning added.

In 2015 about 60 percent of trainees passed with a certificate, a rate that increased to 88 percent in November.

According to the Yonhap News Agency, "The missile flew eastward and the South Korean military is analyzing details with the U.S".

South Korea and the United States are closely monitoring North Korea after reports Monday and Tuesday suggested there are signs of missile testing taking place in the North. A North Korean missile on 29 August was airborne for 14 minutes over Japan.
