North Korea launches 1st ballistic missile in 2 months

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile, South Korean media say, quoting military officials. The US missile defense system has a spotty record, and it's unlikely that the US would risk the destruction of Los Angeles or New York to protect Seoul or Tokyo.

According to the report, more than half of the pool, or 133 defectors, chose vocational training in commercial driving, following three months of resettlement education at Hanawon, where North Koreans are required to stay and learn about life in the South.

"There will be no time to call our loved ones, pick up our kids, and find a designated shelter", Vern Miyagi, administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, said in an interview with the Star-Advertiser.

CNN also confirmed the launch with the South Korean military leaders.

Hawaii will resume nuclear warning sirens for the first time in 30 years this week, amid growing concerns about a strike from North Korea.

It is not clear how far it went or whether it flew over Japan as other missiles did earlier this year.

The loudspeaker in operation was introduced as a new form of psychological warfare from South Korea in 2015 after the North successfully tested another hydrogen bomb.

North Korea launched the missile at around 3am local time (6pm GMT), sparking further fears of the possible outbreak of World War 3.

The source also added North Korea was believed to be operating a radar which tracked the flight path of missiles and according to certain signals that were identified, the use of communication devices had increased in North Korean missile bases a day ago.

But while the test demonstrated range, it's still unknown how credible the launch was.

North Korea defends its weapons programs as a necessary defence against US plans to invade.

Before Wednesday's test, North Korea had fired 22 missiles without active warheads during 15 tests since February. This article is strictly for informational purposes only.

Meanwhile, efforts to progress the Republican tax reform plan advanced on Tuesday, as the senate budget committee voted in favour of the Bill, paving the way for a full vote on the Senate floor as early as Thursday.
