North Korea Launches Unidentified Projectile - South Korean Military

In response to North Korea's expanding nuclear weapons program, South Korea has been moving to strengthen its own capabilities, planning talks with the United States on raising the warhead limits on its missiles and taking steps to place additional launchers to a US anti-missile defense system in the country's southeast.

In recent weeks the North has threatened to fire a salvo of missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam, but has since backed away from the plan and tensions have eased.

These are the first missile tests carried out by North Korea since the launches last month, when the isolated state fired a long-range missile created to reach a distance of 10,000 kilometers, a range putting several stretches of the USA at risk.

"The first and third missiles at 11:49 a.m. and 12:19 p.m. failed in flight".

Will one quarterback play the first quarter with the starters and one play the second? "I kind of look at it the other way". Most of the Jaguars' players say they are comfortable with either Henne or Bortles as the starter for the regular season.

North Korea appears to have launched another missile into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan on Saturday morning, in what would be its first launch this month.

The launch is the first by the North since it test-fired a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICMB) on July 28 that could have been created to reach 10,000km, putting parts of the United States mainland within reach. "The second missile launch at 12:07pm appears to have blown up nearly immediately", Pacific Command said, using times at its Hawaii-based headquarters. This was created to fly 10,000 km capable of reaching US mainland. US President Donald Trump had warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un he would face "fire and fury" if he threatened the US.

"In regards to activity in North Korea tonight, the president has been briefed and we are monitoring the situation", she said.

"North Korea is getting closer to the threshold of the red line", Moon said.

The US State Department did not immediately comment about the Saturday missile launches.

Ed Royce (R-CA) will be accompanied by four other USA representatives in his meeting with the South Korean leader that will be held at Cheong Wa Dae starting at 11 a.m.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff estimated the missiles had traveled over 150 miles before plunging into the Sea of Japan.
