New Update: North Korean Missile Launch

Last night, I posted on my daily update about the most recent launch of a North Korean missile from South Hwanghae Province.  More news has been released regarding the missile.  First, I wrongly reported the order of the missiles.  The first missile is the one that exploded right after launch and the second one was tracked into the Sea of Japan (East Sea).  The missile flew 620 miles, landing in a Japanese Special Economic Zone 200 nautical miles from the coast of Japan.  This has raised a serious alarm in the region.  Tensions also are rising over the North Korea’s nuclear program, but how the missile launch will affect tensions has yet to be seen.
