N. Korea launches projectile believed to be ballistic missile

SEOUL-- North Korea fired what appeared to be a ballistic missile early Sunday, South Korea's military said, in Pyongyang's first provocative act since the South's new President Moon Jae-in came into office.

The North launched the missile from the country's northwest city of Kusong, the South's Joint Chief of Staff said without providing further details, such as the type of the missile or the distance it flew.

It is the North's first missile launch since the last firing on April 29, and the launch came just four days after Moon took office.
