North Korea may conduct another missile test on Saturday, according to reports in South Korea. It comes after the country test-fired at least one short-range missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday.
Fears of another test were prompted when North Korea issued a no-sail warning to ban ships from the seas off its west coast on Saturday South Korea and the U.S. had played down Friday’s test, saying they were part of a military exercise. However, the country’s missile development and nuclear programme have long been a concern for the international community.Last month North Korea displayed a new ballistic missile capable of reaching U.S territory.
