North Korea fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile Wednesday that flew for more than 300 miles, a step forward in the increasingly isolated country’s development of weapons that defy United Nations sanctions, the South Korean military said.
The range, which would allow North Korea to strike anywhere on the South Korean mainland, marked a vast improvement over a launch in April that traveled less than 20 miles. The U.S. Strategic Command said in a news release that the launch “did not pose a threat to North America.”
