North Korean Missile Launch Fails and People in Japan Go About Their Daily Work
Japan, South Korea and the USA were on alert and ready to shoot down North Korea’s latest missile if it were to fly into Japanese airspace. However, 1 minute after launch this morning, the missile broke apart never threatening Japan or reaching the outer atmosphere where it was destined, according to North Korean officials, to place a costly satellite.
Most news channels in Japan are broadcasting other news or TV shows. Only two channels are broadcasting the missile news as a top story as most people in Japan feel this news is not a major concern.
Leading up to the launch, most people were never really concerned with the missile launch. Most people in Japan believe the governments of South Korea, Japan and the United States have their safety ensured.
