North Korea fired a missile over Northern Japan.  President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have responded by requesting an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council. The missile was launched in the early morning, causing sirens to blare and emergency announcements for people to take cover.  The launch followed military games between the US and Japan.

US President Donald Trump has warned Pyongyang that “all options are on the table” after North Korea fired a missile over Japan early Tuesday.

Tuesday’s launch was particularly provocative as it was North Korea’s first ballistic missile to fly over Japan. Kim Jong Un’s regime regularly fires missiles into the sea between its own territory and Japan.
The launch comes as the US and South Korea conduct joint military drills on the peninsula and a day after drills ended between the US and Japan on the northern island of Hokkaido.
It also follows a fiery exchange of threats and insults between Trump and the North Korean regime, commenting through state media.
“The world has received North Korea’s latest message loud and clear: this regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior,” Trump said in a statement, taking a more measured tone than in his previous remarks.
“Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world. All options are on the table.”
