SEOUL  - A missile launched by North Korea early on Wednesday that landed in or near Japanese waters shows North Korea's "ambition to attack neighboring countries," an official at South Korea's joint chiefs of staff of said.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile from its western region into the sea off its east coast, South Korea's military said, the latest in a series of launches in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.

The missile appeared to be a medium-range Rodong missile which flew for about 620 miles (1,000 km), the official said.
