Seoul: North Korea test-fires missile from western region:

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff says North Korea has test-fired a missile from the western part of its country.

North Korea routinely test-fires a variety of ballistic missiles, despite United Nations prohibitions, as part of its push to develop a long-range ballistic missile capable of hitting U.S. shores. While shorter-range missiles are somewhat routine, there is strong outside worry about each longer range North Korean ballistic test. Saturday's launch comes at a point of particularly high tension. U.S. President Donald Trump has taken a hard line with Pyongyang and sent a U.S. aircraft supercarrier to Korean waters.
