North Korea has fired another ballistic missile, the latest in a series of launches that have raised tensions with its neighbours and the US. The Pentagon said it believed it was an intercontinental ballistic missile that flew for about 1,000km (620 miles) and fell into the Sea of Japan. Defence Secretary James Mattis said the missile flew higher than any of its previous launches and that Pyongyang's continued development of missiles "can threaten everywhere in the world basically."
