According to Reuters, a ballistic missile was fired off the eastern coast of North Korea towards Japan on Monday (Jamaica time).
The Japanese government has warned citizens to take cover as the missile appears to have flown over and past its territory before falling into the Pacific Ocean.
Reuters says this latest launch was Pyongyang's fifth in 10 days, amid military muscle-flexing by the United States and South Korea, which staged trilateral anti-submarine exercises last week with Japanese naval forces.
