North Korea Launches Missile, Possibly From A Submarine
The missile reportedly flew about 280 miles and reached an altitude of 565 miles before it landed in the Sea of Japan.
North Korea launched a ballistic missile Wednesday, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff. It's Pyongyang's 11th missile launch since May.
South Korea's military said the missile might have been test-fired from a submarine. The missile reportedly flew about 280 miles and reached an altitude of 565 miles before it landed in the Sea of Japan.
North Korea was developing a line of submarine-launched ballistic missiles before it suspended long-range missile tests in 2018.
An unnamed U.S. official told CNN that although Wednesday's missile looks like it was designed as a submarine-launched ballistic missile, it was likely launched from an underwater platform.
But no matter where it was launched from, analysts agree that North Korea conducted the missile test as a show of strength after it agreed to resume denuclearization talks with the U.S. North Korea's state news agency said those negotiations are set for Oct. 5.
