North Korea launches ballistic missile into sea

North Korea has fired a ballistic missile into the sea, South Korea's defence minister has said. The launch was first reported by the Japanese coast guard early on Wednesday, before being confirmed by defence authorities in Seoul later. The UN prohibits North Korea from ballistic and nuclear weapons tests. This is the first missile launch by Pyongyang after leader Kim Jong-Un pledged to bolster the country's defence capabilities last month.
