North Korea Launches Another ICBM Test

Posted: Jul 28, 2017 7:35 PM

North Korea has launched yet another missile, the Pentagon is reporting. This one landed in the waters off of the coast of Japan, in the country's exclusive economic zone about 230 miles away from shore. The missile was launched at about 10:40 a.m. Eastern time, which is evening in North Korea. The Pentagon confirmed that it was an ICBM. This is North Korea's second ICBM test, the first occurring on July 4. 

In response to the missile test, the United States and South Korea launched joint missile exercises of their own.

There was no damage reported from the North Korean missile test. It's believed that this type of missile could potentially hit California. While North Korea is seemingly capable of launching an ICBM, it's uncertain as to whether or not they are capable of navigating a missile towards a specific target or guiding the missile at all.
