TOKYO (Reuters) - North Korea fired a missile that passed over northern Japan early on Tuesday, the Japanese government said.
The government’s J-Alert warning system advised people in the area to take precautions, but public broadcaster NHK said there was no sign of damage.
The Japanese military did not attempt to shoot down the missile, which passed over Japanese territory around 6:06 a.m. local time (2106 GMT).
