Nordkoreanische ballistische Rakete fliegt über Japan

October 4, 2022 - Nordkorea hat eine Rakete über Japan zum ersten Mal in fünf Jahren abgefeuert. Der Launch der Hwasong-12 ist der fünfte in 10 Tagen, mutmaßlich eine Warnung wegen der gemeinsamen Militärübungen von US, Südkorea und Japan.

It was the first North Korean missile to follow such a trajectory since 2017, and its estimated 4,600 km range may have been the longest distance travelled for a North Korean test flight, which are often “lofted”higher into space to avoid flying over neighbouring countries, according to Reuters.

The Japanese government warned citizens to take cover and temporarily suspended some train services in the northern part of the country while the missile passed over its territory before falling into the Pacific Ocean, Reuters said.
