U.S. military confirms North Korea fired missile

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military’s Pacific Command said on Saturday North Korea had fired a missile near Kusong, but added that the flight was not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The missile launch was detected at approximately 10:30 a.m. Hawaii time, and landed in the Sea of Japan, a U.S. PACOM spokesperson said in a statement.

“The type of missile is being assessed and the flight was not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile,” the spokesperson said.
