Kim Jung Un has done it again (UPDATED)

1st UPDATE: 9:58 p.m. EDT: AFP examines why the U.S. and Japan might especially be angered by the July 4 launch.

At their summit in Washington at the weekend, Trump declared that the US had run out of patience with North Korea over its weapons drive, which includes developing a missile capable of delivering a warhead to the US mainland.

ORIGINAL POST: As July 4 dawned in Asia, North Korea launched another missile.

CNN has the details.

North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile Tuesday from North Pyong’an Province that flew into waters east of the Korean Peninsula, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The projectile may have landed in Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone, which extends 200 nautical miles from its coastline, Takahiro Hirano, Public Affairs Officer from Japan’s Ministry of Defense told CNN.
