Sept 15, 2017 (LBO) – North Korea has reportedly launched an unidentified missile Thursday that landed in the sea after passing over Japan, escalating tensions in the region.

The missile was launched from Pyongyang at 6:57 a.m. Friday headed east, landing in the sea roughly 2,000 kilometers east of Japan’s Cape Erimo.

South Korea too conducted its own missile exercise, reports said, following North Korea’s test of an alleged hydrogen bomb earlier this month.

The United Nations Security Council will meet on Friday to discuss the situation at the request of the United States and Japan.
