North Korean Missile Test Triggers Air Raid Alerts in Japan

HeadlineOct 04, 2022

Japan’s government has condemned North Korea’s military after it test-fired a ballistic missile over the Japanese island of Hokkaido, triggering an emergency alert for 5 million residents. The missile reportedly flew for nearly 3,000 miles before crashing into the Pacific far to the east of Japan, which would make it North Korea’s longest test flight of a missile to date. This comes after Japan and South Korea joined trilateral, U.S.-led naval war games last week in waters off the Korean Peninsula.
