TOKYO (AFP) May 01, 2005
The US military informed Japan Sunday that North Korea may have launched a short-range missile toward the Sea of Japan, Kyodo News agency said, citing government sources.

Japan's government was trying to confirm the information, the sources said. The report said the launch could have taken place earlier Sunday.

North Korea's military ambitions are of particular concern to Japan as the communist state fired a missile over the nation into the Pacific in 1998.
