The test came just days after senior USA officials praised North Korea and leader Kim Jong Un for showing restraint in not firing any missiles since late July. Tokyo's decision to expand its list comes after Washington announced on Tuesday the freezing of assets and banning financial transactions with more than fifteen Chinese and Russian entities and individuals for their association with North Korea .
South Korea's Yonhap news agency has also reported the possible test, citing the country's military. Yoshihide Suga told reporters the missiles early Saturday did not fall into Japan's territorial waters or the coastal 200-mile economic zone.
Kim Dong-yub, a former South Korean military official who is now an analyst at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies, said that South Korean assessment doesn't necessarily contradict the U.S. The US State Department did not immediately comment about the Saturday launches. His comments had come soon after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the North has demonstrated some level of restraint in recent days, "that we've not seen in the past".

U.S. Army soldiers prepare for their military exercise in Paju, South Korea, near the border with North Korea, Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017. The missile launches come as tens of thousands of South Korean and U.S. North Korea's ICBM launches last month triggered an intense warning by Trump that Washington could rain "fire and fury" on the North. The U.S. Pacific Command says its assessments indicate that the three missiles failed.
The terror group, which emerged in Iraq in 2014, lost the northern city of Mosul, its last urban base in the country, to Iraqi forces last month. The attack comes as the Iraqi forces are in final stages of recapturing the northern town of Tal Afar from IS.
That puts the North well ahead of the pace it set a year ago when 24 missiles were fired. All three appeared to be short-range missiles, rather than the long-range types created to be able to strike the United States, and were launched from Kittaeryong on North Korea's east coast.
An ICBM launched July 28 reached an altitude of 3,700 kilometers and flew for 45 minutes, giving it a range of about 10,000 kilometers if fired at a typical trajectory. Kim expressed "great satisfaction" at the success of the contest, the agency said. The projectiles, launched at 6:49 a.m. from Gangwon Province, flew 250 kilometers (155 miles) in a northeasterly direction, South Korea's joint chief of staff said in a text message.
They come during a joint military exercise between the USA and South Korea . Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-nam will meet with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan and other ranking officials on Monday, according to Seoul's foreign ministry.
Analysts said the launches appeared to be a response to the ongoing joint exercises between the United States and South Korean militaries, exercises that North Korea always strongly protests because it considers them preparation for an invasion.
South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that a "projectile" had been fired on Saturday morning and that it was working to determine what kind of missile it was, according to the South's Yonhap News Agency. North Korea is approximately 3,400 km from Guam, and 8,400 km from Britain. Tillerson called North Korea's "restraint" pleasing and said it could open a pathway for dialogue in the near future.
Those flew some 250 km in the northeastern direction before falling into the sea, the Yonhap news agency cited the JCS as reporting, claiming that the projects appeared to be short-range missiles. "The second missile launch at 12:07pm appears to have blown up nearly immediately". The United States and South Korea are technically still at war with the North because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.
President Trump declared that Mexico would pay for his promised border wall on Sunday. Trump, in a speech on Tuesday, threatened a shutdown if Congress didn't agree to fund constructing the wall, a signature promise of his presidential campaign, which added a new complication to Republicans' months-long struggle to reach a budget deal.
Five mountain climbers died in the Austrian Alps on Mount Gabler, east of Innsbruck, and a sixth climber was severely injured. Apparently, one member of the group slipped and fell on a glacier , bringing the others down with him. The cause of the fall was not immediately known. "We think a rope came loose", Anton Voithofer, head of the Red Cross rescue team, said. It also wasn't clear how exactly the five persons died.
Lee Il-Woo, an analyst at Korea Defence Network, said the launches represented a "low-level provocative act" carried out in response to the US-South Korea exercises, which are seen by Pyongyang as a rehearsal for an invasion of its own territory.
Bajwa offered to form a Pakistan and Afghan army working group to jointly work and formulate security recommendations for the government-level discussion aimed at addressing mutual concerns. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on August 27 said the administration's new strategy in Afghanistan is created to put pressure on the Taliban to enter into negotiations with Kabul by "sending a message.that we are not going anywhere".
The South Korean Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles flew in a northeasterly direction for about 250 kilometres (155 miles) into the sea. Benham said the command is working with its Interagency partners "on a more detailed assessment and will provide a public update if warranted". Japan's NHK broadcast said the projectiles did not appear to be objects that could threaten Japan's safety.
While the projectile that supposedly blew up immediately after launch was clearly a failure, Kim, the analyst, said the North with the other missiles could have been experimenting with developmental technologies or deliberately detonated the warheads at certain heights and locations.
The person insisted on anonymity to discuss the plan ahead of an official announcement. Trump has been a vocal supporter of police during both his campaign and his administration. In addition to the aircrafts, command units, battering rams, and riot gear, that Obama's executive order made exceptions for, police departments will, once again, be able to receive "armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, and ammunition" from the Department of Defense.
