North Korea sparks WW3 fears by ‘firing missile towards Japan’ in show of force

North Korea has sparked WW3 fears by firing a missile towards Japan, according to reports.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency claim the projectile was fired into the East Sea this evening.

It comes just days after Kim's rogue state was caught firing two missiles towards Japanese waters on March 20.

The “unidentified projectiles” landed outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) waters, which is off the east cost of the Korean peninsula.

The unknown projectile was detected flying into the East Sea according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

According to South Korea’s military, the US and China have appealed for Pyongyang to return to talks on ending its nuclear and missile programmes.

If confirmed, today's test would be the fourth this month – with previous launches having taken place on March 20 and 9 according to Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

State media KCNA said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un guided an an artillery fire competition between combined units of the North Korean army on Friday.

North Korea also announced on Saturday it will hold a session of the Supreme People's Assembly, its legislature, which analysts had said would involve gathering almost 700 of the country's leaders in one spot.

The decision has raised eyebrows from world leaders who are currently advising citizens to implement "social distancing" measures as the coronavirus spread worldwide.
