North Korea fired on Sunday an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast, South Korea’s military said.
The nature of the projectile is not immediately clear, a South Korean military official said, though local media reports that it appears to be a ballistic missile.
The launch took place at a region named Kusong located northwest of the capital, Pyongyang, where the North previously test-launched an intermediate-range missile it is believed to be developing.
The projectile flew 430 miles, according to The Diplomat. There are reports it was in the air for 30 minutes.
