North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches the launch of a Hwasong-12 missile in this undated photo.
Japan is preparing to acquire precision air-launched missiles that for the first time would give it the capability to strike North Korean missile sites, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said earlier this week.
To finance the extra budget, the government plans to sell about 1.2 trillion yen of construction bonds and cover most of the rest with leftover debt servicing money.
The missile was far from the plane, and operation was unaffected, Cathay said, adding that it had informed other carriers and relevant authorities. While most experts have been focusing on what they believe is the dictatorship's most technologically advanced missile, some scholars were looking at the background instead - more specifically the sky on the night of the test launch.
Mr Wright also said the "flash" seen by Korean pilots about an hour after the missile's launch would be consistent with the warhead heating up during reentry, since the missile flew for 53 to 54 minutes.
An airline crew traveling from San Francisco to Hong Kong claim they had a chilling, front-row seat to North Korea's latest missile test over the Sea of Japan. North Korea likely chooses splashdown points for each stage that avoid airline routes, said Vipin Narang, an expert on nuclear strategy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters", Cathay said.
Changes to the route between Los Angeles and Seoul, South Korea, have been in place since July. "We remain alert and review the situation as it evolves".
It is very unlikely that a plane would be hit by a random missile, though.
Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to escalate, with the USA and South Korea launching major joint drills on Monday.
"Stars just don't look that different a few miles apart, and we have no reason to disbelieve that this launch was from the Pyongsong region north of Pyongyang", McDowell said.
North Korea has long objected against joint drills by the two allies, with Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations ruling out negotiations with Washington in November, citing America's "hostile policy" against his country and continuing joint exercises. However, the proposal was swiftly rejected by Washington over the summer.
Always take North Korean media with a grain of salt. Lavrov slammed the comment as a "bloodthirsty tirade".
