The Japanese government has issued a warning to its citizens after North Korea fired a missile over the country.
It was launched from the Sunan district of Pyongyang, South Korea’s military said.
The missile flew over Japan, NHK television said, and the government is warning citizens to avoid touching anything that looks like debris.
‘Japan can never tolerate this repeated provocative action by North Korea,’ Tokyo’s government spokesman told reporters, adding that the country will make an appropriate response.
‘We have strongly protested to the North, telling them the strong anger by the Japanese people and condemn with the strongest words possible.’
