The Guardian: North Korea test-fires what could be new kind of longer-range missile
Unidentified missile type could have a maximum theoretical range of 4,500km on a standard trajectory, says expert

Japan did not specify what type of missile was involved in Sunday’s launch, which came after Pyongyang indicated it was open to talks with the South on its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programmes.
