Sirens in Japan as N Korean Missile Zips Overhead, Far Enough to Hit Guam

Sirens in Japan as N Korean Missile Zips Overhead, Far Enough to Hit Guam Read Transcript


It is the second North Korean missile

to fly over Japan in the past month.

An act of defiance from Kim Jong-un,

and a major technological advance for his regime.

[SIRENS]

In Japan, alarms blared Friday warning people to take cover.

I woke up this morning with a really loud noise on my phone.

Find shelter in a basement.

North Korea just launched a missile.

This was North Korea's longest ever test flight

of a ballistic missile, the weapon traveling

some 2,300 miles into the Northern Pacific Ocean.

And an important point, Guam, a hub

of important US military assets is within that range,

only about 2,100 miles from North Korea.

[MISSILE LAUNCHES]

Speaking aboard Air Force One, President Trump

said he is working with the Chinese

on pressuring the North Korean dictatorship,

and wanted to reassure Americans.

But believe me, the people of this country

will be very, very safe.

The launch comes less than two weeks

after North Korea's sixth and most powerful nuclear test

of a hydrogen bomb, and after the United Nations

voted Monday for new sanctions against the country,

banning its exports of natural gas and textiles.

The Pentagon says initial assessments

suggest this was an intermediate missile, not

an intercontinental missile which could reach the US.

Still, the move seems to confirm what many experts have long

feared.

North Korea is closer than ever to its goal

of building a military arsenal that

can target our forces in both Asia

and the US mainland itself.

In Washington, Jenna Browder, CBN News.
