Altitude of N. Korean missile flight could have been over 3,000 km: NHK quoting Japan defense official

TOKYO (Reuters) - A missile launched by North Korea late on Friday night may have flown higher than 3,000 km, a Japanese defense official was quoted by NHK public television as saying.

Japanese officials had previously said the missile, in a rare night launch, had flown for about 45 minutes and landed in the waters of Japan’s exclusive economic zone, although there were no reports of damage.
