This photo, released by North Korea’s state-run news agency, shows the test-firing of a new ballistic missile. A US official said the missile traveled 500 kilometers (310 miles) before landing in the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea. North Korea is prohibited from carrying out ballistic missile launches under UN Security Council resolutions that are aimed, in part, at curbing the country’s development of nuclear weapons. The test stoked concerns that Pyongyang may be getting closer than previously thought to a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile.
