North Korea has claimed to launch a spy satellite, according to the South Korean agency Yonhap. This comes after two failed attempts in May and August. The South Korean military reported the new launch heading south, but there are no details available at this time. The Japanese Kyodo agency also reported the launch of a missile by North Korea, presumably a ballistic missile, which triggered an alarm system in the Okinawa prefecture.
In the past few hours, Tokyo had announced that Pyongyang had signaled to Japan a nine-day timeframe for the launch of a satellite transport rocket, starting from midnight on Wednesday, local time, and through November 30. However, the reported launch occurred before that time frame, according to Kyodo. The South Korean military detected the launch from the Tongchang-ri area on the northwestern coast of North Korea at around 10:43pm local time.
The missile would have flown over the Pacific Ocean at around 10:55pm local time, triggering an alarm for the inhabitants of Okinawa. However, the measures were revoked shortly after.
