North Korea is back at it again it seems, as new reports coming out of Fox News indicate they have fired an unidentified ballistic missile.

Yonhap News Agency out of South Korea was the first to report the launch, saying the missile headed on an eastward trajectory, according to Korean military officials. The launch took place at around 3 a.m. Korean time.

The Prime Minister’s Office for disaster and crisis management information sent out a tweet not long after the news broke:

“North Korea launched a missile that has the possibility of arriving in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of our country.”

Here’s a few more details from the Fox report:

There have been signs that indicated the Kim Jong Un’s regime was planning a missile launch in recent days. Japan’s Kyodo News reported on Monday that Japanese government detected radio signals that indicated a possible missile test in the near future.

North Korea last fired an intermediate-range missile on Sept. 15 that flew over Japan’s Hokkaido Island before splashing into the Pacific Ocean. The missile flew 2,300 miles out, putting U.S. island territory of Guam in place.

South Korean unification minister Cho Myoung-gyon told foreign correspondents in Seoul on Tuesday that North Korea is on the verge of achieving full nuclear capability with an intercontinental ballistic missile that could carry a nuclear warhead, according to Yonhap News Agency.

This isn’t all North Korea has been up to lately. We reported just a few days ago about a ghost ship that washed up on Japan’s North Korean facing shore.

The remains of eight ill-fated seafarers in a skeleton-filled ghost ship have washed ashore on Japan’s North Korean facing coast. These tragic and often grisly finds are becoming all too common as desperate defectors try to find a new route to freedom after despot Kim Jong Un has clamped down on those fleeing his tyrannical regime earlier this year.

A Japanese resident spotted the 22-foot wooden boat floating in Miyazawa Beach in Oga, Akita Prefecture along the Sea of Japan. Japanese officials searched the vessel and found the skeletonized remains indicating a significant time had passed prior to the vessel washing ashore. The decomposition was so advanced as to make telling if the occupants of the vessel were men or women. The 68-year-old woman who initially spotted the boat told Kyodo News she saw rescue workers carrying skeletal remains using stretchers.

The communist regime also recently decided to show his iron fist by banning North Koreans from singing and drinking. What a great guy, right?

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un keeps his citizens on a tight leash, according to defectors, but the leader has now constricted his control even further by banning North Koreans from drinking and singing, according to a new report out of North Korea.

Citizens have been banned from participating in “any gatherings related to drinking, singing and other entertainment,” Yonhap News Agency reported Monday. The North Korean regime is also “strengthening control of outside information.”

We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
