North Korea has fired a ballistic missile that passed over Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters early tuesday.

A South Korean military official told NBC News that the projectile was fired around 5:57 A.M. local time on Tuesday. U.S. Pacific Command projected that the missile will splash down at 6:29 A.M. local time.

Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that the Japanese government warned that a North Korean missile was headed toward the Tohoku region at the northern end of the country. NHK also reported that Japan took no action to shoot down the projectile.

The Japanese government has urged people in the Tohoku region to take refuge in solid buildings or underground shelters, according to NHK. On Monday, U.S. and Japanese servicemen concluded joint exercises in Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost major island. A senior U.S. intelligence official told NBC that this would be the first missile test to pass over Japan on a high altitude trajectory. In 1998, North Korea fired a missile through Japanese airspace.

Tensions surrounding North Korea's missile tests have ratcheted up throughout the summer as Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump engaged in a war of words. Trump previously warned Pyongyang that threates against the United States would be met with "fire and fury." North Korean state media subsequently responded saying that it was considerig striking the U.S. territory of Guam.

This is a developing story. I will be continuing to add extra information to this topic if there is any presented.

North Korea think they can take on the world.

One wrong move and they will be decimated of this planet and won't be any mark they ever existed.
