North Korea reportedly launched yet another missile.

The launch comes just a few days after the U.N. Security Council sanctioned North Korea for its nuclear tests. The country said it would retaliate by sinking Japan and turning the U.S. into "ashes and darkness."

It seems North Korea has made a lot of recent progress on its missile program. The Hermit Kingdom claimed it had a successful test of a missile-ready nuclear bomb in early September.
