The AP reported the missile was in the air for almost an hour and reached an altitude of 2,780 miles before plummeting into the Sea of Japan about 600 miles from its launch point.

After last week's launch, the rogue state boasted that the weapon was capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.
According to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), that is a comment that needs to be taken seriously.
North Korea has long objected against joint drills by the two allies, with Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations ruling out negotiations with Washington in November, citing America's "hostile policy" against his country and continuing joint exercises.
