North Korea Saturday fired what appeared to be submarine-launched ballistic missile off its eastern coast, the U.S. and South Korea said, in the latest test that's part of efforts by the North to advance technology capable of delivering nuclear warheads.The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said the missile launch did not pose a threat to North America.North Korea already has a considerable arsenal of land-based ballistic missiles and is believed to be advancing its efforts to miniaturize nuclear warheads mounted on missiles through nuclear and rocket tests.The North also test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile on Dec. 25, but that test was seen as failure, the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The North first claimed a successful submarine-launched missile test in May last year.
