Seoul/ Tokyo: North Korea launched what appeared to be an intermediate-range missile today to a high altitude in the direction of Japan before it plunged into the sea, military officials said, a technological advance for the isolated state after several test failures.
The launch came about two hours after a similar test failed, South Korea's military said, and covered 400 km, more than halfway towards the southwest coast of Japan's main island of Honshu.
