North Korea on Wednesday again fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan, South Korea's military said, in a provocation that comes amid annual joint U.S.-South Korean military drills.
The single ballistic missile launched at around 6:42 a.m. Seoul time (5:42 p.m. Tuesday ET) from the area of the port city of Sinpo traveled about 60 kilometers, or just over 37 miles, before crashing into the sea, a South Korean military officer said.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had a terse response.
"North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile. The United States has spoken enough about North Korea," Tillerson said. "We have no further comment."
