DPRK fires missile from Pyongyang after UN sanctions

The DPRK on Friday fired an "unidentified" missile from its capital Pyongyang, South Korea's military said.

The missile, flying eastward about 3,700 kilometers, likely reached an altitude of 770 kilometers, the military said.

Japan said the missile flew over its northern territory and fell into the Pacific Ocean, 2,000 kilometers off the cape of Erimo in Hokkaido at around 7:16 a.m. local time, Japan's national broadcaster NHK said.

Friday's missile launch came after UN slapped sanctions on Pyongyang on Monday, imposing a ban on the country's textile exports and capping imports of crude oil.
