North Korea Sends Serious Threat To Britain And Australia

North Korea is reported to have launched several missiles, heightening tensions

North Korea launched at least three short-range ballistic missiles that landed in the Sea of Japan, South Korean and the United States military said on Saturday.

The first and third missiles failed in flight, while the second appears to have blown up nearly immediately, according to a statement issued by the US Pacific Command in Hawaii, which monitors North Korean missiles. Japan has previously deployed missile interceptors after North Korea threatened to fire projectiles over Japan toward the US territory of Guam.

The projectiles were launched from a site near Gitdaeryong in Gangwon Province at around 6.49 a.m, according to the South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), Xinhua reported.

If true, it would be the first time the country has managed to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which could potentially have the range to reach the US.

The missile test capped yet another eventful week on the Korean peninsula, which began with the annual US-South Korea military exercises.

Lee Il-Woo, an analyst at Korea Defense Network, said the launches represented a "low-level provocative act" carried out in response to the US-South Korea exercises, which are seen by Pyongyang as a rehearsal for an invasion of its own territory.

"We will continue to work with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment of this latest launch and we will provide a public update if warranted", command spokesman Cmdr. The statement further added that the launches "did not pose a threat to North America" or Guam.

So what better way to celebrate a partnership with Nintendo than to reveal three new Battle-cars coming with the game's release. Along with the new Battle-Cars, Rocket League on Switch will also have several exclusive customization items.

New reports suggest North Korea is developing a stronger type of nuclear missile.

"We confirmed there was no direct impact on our country's security".

North Korea this week said the exercises were evidence that the United States planned to invade North Korea.

North Korea's state media also last week reported that leader Kim Jong Un visited the Chemical Material Institute of the Academy of Defence Sciences and inspected designs for two new long-range missiles, raising the threat of a chemical attack as well.

"This is the most tense I've ever seen [it]", a North Korean official told Ripley.

The rival Koreas recently saw their always testy relationship get worse after Pyongyang and President Donald Trump traded warlike threats.
