Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Thursday that a missile launched by North Korea “did not fall in Japanese territory”, after the government issued a warning to residents of Hokkaido.

Defence Minister Yasukazu Hamada told reporters that the projectile, which was “likely to be an ICBM-class ballistic missile, sharply angled eastwards” also did not appear to have fallen in Japan’s economic waters.
