The US says North Korea latest missile launch a global threat

North Korea has fired its highest-ever intercontinental ballistic missile and poses a worldwide threat, US Secretary of Defence James Mattis has said. Earlier the Pentagon said the missile had flown for about 1,000 kilometers before falling into the Sea of Japan.

North Korea's last ballistic missile launch was in September and came days after its sixth nuclear test.
