For the record, here was U.S. Pacific Command's snap assessment of this morning's N. Korean launch.

U.S. Pacific Command detected what we assess was a North Korean missile launch at 5:33 a.m. KST April 29. The ballistic missile launch occurred near the Puk Chang airfield. The missile did not leave North Korean territory. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America. U.S. Pacific Command stands behind our steadfast commitment to the security of our allies in the Republic of Korea and Japan.
