Kim defies US sanctions with another missile blast

SEOUL – In apparent defiance of new sanctions announced by the United States two days ago, North Korea unleashed yet another projectile Friday.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff announced on Friday afternoon that North Korea had fired “an unidentified projectile eastward.” Meanwhile, the Japanese government tentatively identified it as a ballistic missile test.

If, as looks highly likely, this was indeed a test of a North Korean missile fired into the Sea of Japan, it will be the third in less than 10 days. And it comes only two days after the US announced new sanctions against North Korea.
