South Korean media has claimed that North Korea has fired a ballistic missile.
Japan has also confirmed radio signals were picked up, adding that Tokyo is currently on alert. The United States military later confirmed this to be the case. Both Tokyo and Washington were placed on alert over the radio signals, with a test possibly happening in the next few days.
South Korean and American authorities will work together to assess the missile’s trajectory; it is possible that the missile flew over Japan like other missiles had done this year, although it is unconfirmed at this time.
