North Korea fired what appeared to be a ballistic missile into its eastern sea earlier today.
That's its second launch in a week.
The launches follow a series of weapons tests from the Communist nation in 2021.
Those firings underscored how North Korea is continuing to expand its military capabilities during a self-imposed pandemic lockdown and deadlocked nuclear talks with the United States.
South Korea said the weapon flew 434 miles at a maximum speed of around Mach 10 before landing in waters off its eastern coast.
