Govt.: N.Korea's missiles fell inside Japan's EEZ

Japanese defense ministry sources say they now believe the two ballistic missiles North Korea fired on Wednesday likely fell inside Japan's exclusive economic zone.

The Japanese government earlier announced the two projectiles appeared to have fallen outside the EEZ, based on information it obtained right after the launch.

The follow-up analysis suggests that the missiles flew about 750 kilometers with irregular trajectories at an altitude of under 100 kilometers.

The last time a North Korean ballistic missile fell inside Japan's EEZ was in October 2019.
