North Korea's missile likely an intermediate range Musudan - South Korea

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s military said a ballistic missile launched by North Korea on Sunday was probably an intermediate range Musudan class, revising its earlier assessment that it was likely to have been a medium-range missile.

“The missile fired around Panghyon in the city of Kusong is likely to be an improved version of a Musudan missile,” South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

The missile launched on Sunday flew about 500 kilometres (300 miles). A Musudan is designed to travel up to 3,000-4,000 kilometres.
