North Korea has conducted a new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Test, second in a month. In a statement, US military said, the latest missile was launched last night from an arms plant in Jagang province and landed about 1,000 kilometers from the launch site.

Japan said, the missile is believed to have landed in its exclusive economic zone 45 minutes after the launch.

Experts said, the missile had a range of about 10,000 kilometers and is capable of striking Los Angeles and other US cities. Pyongyang had conducted its first ICBM test three weeks ago.

South Korea said it will proceed with the deployment of four additional Terminal High Altitude Area Defenae (THAAD) units after North Korea’s latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
