North Korea has launched what appears to be a ballistic missile, the Japanese government said Sunday. North Korea said Friday it had successfully test-fired a "high-thrust solid-fuel motor" with 140 tons of thrust, according to state media, as the country seeks to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of being launched with a shorter preparation time.
