North Korea on Tuesday launched an unidentified missile into the sea, dashing hopes for progress toward a diplomatic solution to the ongoing nuclear crisis. South Korean, Japanese, and U.S. officials confirmed the launch and said the test likely involved an intercontinental ballistic missile. The rocket traveled about 620 miles and landed in the Sea of Japan, about 200 nautical miles from the Japanese coast. Japan’s chief Cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, said his country filed a strong protest over the incident.
