    SEOUL, May 21 (Yonhap) -- North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile Sunday afternoon, which flew more than 500 kilometers, only a week after it launched another rocket, South Korea's military announced. President Moon Jae-in immediately convened a National Security Council meeting to discuss the communist neighbor's provocation. "North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile in the eastern direction at around 4:59 p.m. from the vicinity of Pukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province)," the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a statement. It said South Korea and the U.S. are analyzing details including the type of the missile and its...

    NK claims successful launch of new ballistic missile North Korea said Monday it has successfully tested-fired a new ground-to-ground medium long-range ballistic missile, claiming that the U.S. mainland is within its striking range.

    "North Korea missile explosion deliberate, experts sayBy Park Si-so - Posted : 2017-04-30 13:27The mid-air explosion of a North Korean missile on Saturday morning was deliberate, not a failed launch as claimed, South Korean government officials say. It is believed the North was testing a warhead explosion, an essential step toward testing a nuclear warhead explosion. "We don't believe the mid-air explosion was an accident," cable news channel YTN quoted a government official as saying. "It's believed the explosion was a test to develop a nuclear weapon different from existing ones." The nuclear-armed isolated country fired a ballistic missile on...

    NBC ^ | April 19, 2017 | KEN DILANIAN
    Top generals have been insisting for years that if North Korea launched a missile at the United States, the U.S military would be able to shoot it down. But that is a highly questionable assertion, according to independent scientists and government investigators. In making it, the generals fail to acknowledge huge questions about the effectiveness of the $40 billion missile defense system they rely on to stop a potential nuclear-armed ballistic missile fired by North Korean or Iran, according to a series of outside reviews. "They are leading political leaders to believe that they have a military capability that they...

    RUSH: Okay. So the Norks launched a missile on Saturday that blew up the moment it left the pad. The rumor going around is that we cyber hacked the North Korean launch system, their computer system, and guess what? The Drive-Bys are not wasting any time in crediting the Obama administration for the high-tech hackery that the Trump administration was able to use. So eager have the Drive-Bys been, I probably should have figured this, but look at all the months that have gone by here. We’re coming up on a hundred days and the Drive-Bys just jumped on this....

McFarland on Sunday declined to say whether the U.S. cyber-sabotaged North Korea’s failed missile launch, saying only that it was “a fizzle.” “You know we can’t talk about secret intelligence and things that might have been done, covert operations,” McFarland told “Fox News Sunday.” “I really have no comment.” Still, McFarland, a former Fox News contributor, said the failed non-nuclear missile test Sunday by the rogue nation was one of about 30 failed attempts and that cyberwar is now a...

    A North Korean missile “blew up almost immediately” on its test launch on Sunday, the U.S. Pacific Command said, hours before U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was due in South Korea for talks on the North’s increasingly defiant arms program. The failed launch from North Korea’s east coast, ignoring admonitions from major ally China, came a day after North Korea held a military parade in its capital, marking the birth anniversary of the state founder, in which what appeared to be new long-range ballistic missiles were on display. South Korea said the combined show of force “threatened the whole world”....

    A woman with a baby in a crowd of protestersImage copyrightEPA Image caption - Syrians protested outside the UN offices in Damascus Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has said "terrorists are celebrating" US strikes on a Syrian airbase. His comments echo the response from Russia, which like Iran is allied to Syria, and from Syria itself. At least six people are reported to have been killed in the missile strikes in the early hours of Friday. The strikes followed Wednesday's suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun, in which 89 people are reported to have died.

    Beirut: Warplanes on Saturday struck the Syrian town where a chemical attack had killed scores of people earlier this week, as Turkey warned that a retaliatory US missile strike on a Syrian air base would only be "cosmetic" if greater efforts are not made to remove President Bashar Assad from power. The airstrikes on the opposition-held northern town of Khan Sheikhoun, where 87 people were killed in the chemical attack earlier this week, killed a woman and wounded her son, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective. Elsewhere in Syria,...
