North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile into Japanese waters, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.
The missile was fired around 3 a.m. in North Korea on Wednesday, local time.

The country last fired an intermediate-range middle on Sept. 15, which flew over Japan’s Hokkaido Island and later landed in the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. territory of Guam was in range of the missile, which flew 2,300 miles out.
