South Korea: North Korea’s missile likely an intermediate range Musudan

News Hour:

South Korea’s military said a ballistic missile launched by North Korea on Sunday was probably an intermediate range Musudan class, revising its earlier assessment that it was likely to have been a medium-range missile.

“The missile fired around Panghyon in the city of Kusong is likely to be an improved version of a Musudan missile,” South Korea’s Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement, reports Reuters.

The missile launched on Sunday flew about 500 kilometers (300 miles). A Musudan is designed to travel up to 3,000-4,000 kilometers.
