It is being reported today, Tuesday, October 4, that North Korea has fired at least one ballistic missile toward Japan. The latest indications are that the projectile will pass directly over the country’s capital city of Tokyo.

Television channels in Japan are displaying a ‘bunker message’ with the government urging citizens to evacuate their homes and relocate to a strong building or even go underground.

The missile is believed to have been fired at around 7.22am, allegedly in the direction of the cities of Aomori and Hokkaido. As a result, air defence sirens have been reported sounding in Japan.

UPDATE: The Japanese Ministry of Defence has announced that the missile crossed safely over the country and landed in the Pacific Ocean. A press conference has reportedly been called to take place in the next 15 minutes by Fumio Kishida, the Japanese Prime Minister.
