Pentagon: North Korea Has Fired Another Ballistic Missile

North Korea has launched another ballistic missile, the Pentagon announced on Friday. It may have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone after it was launched about midnight, Reuters reports. Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said, “We are assessing and will have more information soon.” Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said officials are analyzing the launch. He called a meeting of the National Security Council. After the reclusive country’s previous intercontinental ballistic missile test, President Trump attacked the action, claiming the rogue state was “behaving in a very, very dangerous manner.” He added, “I have some pretty severe things that we are thinking about. That doesn’t mean we are going to do it. I don’t draw red lines.”
