North Korea says it has successfully tested a long-range “intercontinental” missile. It is the first time North Korea has claimed to have successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which could potentially have the range to reach the US mainland. Earlier the US said a missile landed in the Sea of Japan but that it did not pose a threat to North America.

North Korea has increased the frequency of its missile tests, raising tensions. An announcement on North Korea state television said a Hwasong-14 missile was tested on Tuesday, overseen by leader Kim Jong-un. The announcement said the projectile reached an altitude of 2,802km (1,731 miles) and flew 933km before hitting a target in the sea.
Reacting to the launch, President of the United States of America, Donald Trump took to his Twitter to make reference to North Korean president, Kim Jong-un saying: “Does this guy have anything better to do with his life? Hard to believe that South Korea and Japan will put up with this much longer. Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!”
