Watch North Korea launch 4 banned ballistic missiles toward Japan
North Korea launched four forbidden missiles toward U.S. military bases in Japan on Monday, putting the region on edge. The missiles flew about 620 miles (1,000 km) before landing in the sea.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned via the state news agency that if the countries retaliated, “We will demolish the origin of the invasion and provocation with a nuclear tipped missile.”
On Tuesday, the U.S. military confirmed it has begun assembling an anti-missile defense system in South Korea.
