The DPRK has confirmed in an announcement on state broadcaster Korean Central Television that it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Tuesday.

The missile was launched on Tuesday morning from Banghyon, a western area of the DPRK near the border with China, into the Sea of Japan.

It was first reported by Republic of Korea (ROK) sources earlier in the day.

This was the fourth ballistic missile launched by the DPRK since ROK President Moon Jae-in took office in May.
