TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday he would do all in his power to protect the Japanese public after North Korea fired a missile that passed over the country’s territory.

“We will make utmost efforts to firmly protect the lives of the people,” Abe told reporters in brief remarks as he entered his office for emergency meetings on the missile firing.
