North Korea says ready to deploy, mass-produce new missile

- TOKYO — North Korea said Monday it is ready to start mass-producing a new medium-range missile after a weekend test-launch confirmed its combat readiness.

The solid-fuel Pukguksong-2 missile flew about 500 kilometers (310 miles) and reached a height of 560 kilometers (350 miles) on Sunday before plunging into the Pacific Ocean

A look at every North Korean missile test this year

- North Korea has launched eight missile tests so far in 2017. Here's what to know about each of the tests that have already occurred this year.

- North Korea’s latest medium-range missile firing drew a direct rebuke from U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson — and provided a fresh indication that Kim Jong Un will continue such provocations, even if it rankles China and other neighbor nations.
