North Korea fired a ballistic missile Friday in an unusual late-night launch, which flew longer than any of its previous missiles, landing in the waters of Japan's exclusive economic zone, said officials from Japan, South Korea and the United States.Suga said that the North Korean missile flew for about 45 minutes.The data indicates the missile was fired at a sharply lofted angle but packed more power than a missile launched earlier this month that U.S. and South Korean officials said was an ICBM, potentially capable of hitting the U.S.North Korea usually conducts its missile and underground nuclear tests in the morning. It's likely the North launched the missile at night and from the remote province of Jagang to demonstrate its operational versatility.
