North Korea launched a suspected intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday, officials in South Korea and Japan said. The missile was most likely to have landed in the water about 210 kilometers (130 miles) west of Hokkaido, according to the Japan Coast Guard. According to Japanese Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada, the missile had sufficient range to reach the United States mainland. The launch on Friday comes a day after North Korea fired a short-range ballistic missile. Pyongyang has warned it will carry out further such actions, sparking worries that a nuclear test may occur soon.
