Post re the launch yesterday:

South Korean media (Yonhap) have provided a little more information:

  • North Korea said Thursday that it has conducted a test-firing of what it called a "hypersonic" missile
  • North Korean leader Kim Jong-un did not attend the firing.
  • The North conducted the first test-firing of the "hypersonic" missile Hwasong-8 in September last year, though the South Korean military have said it appeared to be at an early stage of development.
