Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “N Korea test-fires suspected submarine-launched ballistic missile” – below is their description.

North Korea has fired what appeared to be a submarine-launched ballistic missile towards the sea off its eastern coast, South Korea has said, with Japan saying two missiles were launched.

North Korea has a submarine base as well as equipment for test-firing submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) in the area and has previously launched other types of missiles from there.

“The intelligence authorities of South Korea and the United States are currently conducting a thorough analysis regarding additional details on the missile,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a text message to reporters, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. The National Security Council, which held a 70-minute meeting following the launch, expressed “deep regret” at the test.
