North Korea fires second suspected missile in six days.

Written by on January 11, 2022

North Korea has fired a suspected ballistic missile, less than a week after it launched what it claimed was a hypersonic missile.

South Korea said it detected the launch at 07:27 local time on Tuesday (22:27 GMT on Monday).

Japan’s coast guard also reported the launch, saying North Korea had fired a ballistic missile-like object.

It comes shortly after six countries issued a statement urging the North to cease its destabilising actions.

The latest launch underscores North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s pledge to bolster the country’s defences as part of its policy priorities for 2022, which were outlined during a key meeting in December.
