Cool N.Korea launches 'missile'

N.Korea launches 'missile'

Asia Feb. 7, 2016 | Updated 00:07 UTC-6

North Korea has launched what is widely believed to be a long-range ballistic missile.

State-run TV said on Sunday that the country successfully launched an earth-observation satellite into orbit.

It said scientists launched the rocket at 9 AM local time, and put the satellite into orbit 9 minutes later.

Japanese government officials say the launch took place at around 0:31 AM UTC on Sunday in the western part of North Korea. The officials used information from the Japanese Self-Defense Forces and other sources.

One part of the missile is believed to have fallen into the Yellow Sea, about 150 kilometers west of the Korean Peninsula. Two other parts fell into the East China Sea, about 250 kilometers southwest of the peninsula.

The officials believe another part passed through Japanese airspace over Okinawa and dropped into the Pacific Ocean, about 2,000 kilometers south of Japan. That's outside an area the North had previously mentioned.

Officials say a fifth part also passed through Japanese airspace and continued south.

I swear, you can set your watch to Kim Jong Un's petulant outbursts. Just let the spotlight drift away from his nation long enough and they pull out a parlor trick.
