North Korea Missile Launches Leave For A Short Reaction Window

It took around 15 minutes for North Korea’s missile to launch near the capital of Pyongyang, fly across Japan’s northern region of Hokkaido and finally split into fragments as it fell into the western Pacific, some 1,700 miles from its origin point. After about eight minutes, the missile had already reached Japan, the first time since 2009 that North Korea launched a projectile over the country.
