North Korea fired a medium-range ballistic missile on April 2, with South Korea, the United States and Japan conducting a joint aerial exercise involving nuclear-capable B-52H bombers just hours later.

Pyongyang's latest launch comes less than two weeks after Kim supervised a solid-fuel engine test for a new intermediate-range hypersonic missile (IRBM), with experts suggesting the launch on April 2 could be of the same weapon.

Seoul's military said the missile, launched early on April 2, flew around 600 km before splashing down in waters between South Korea and Japan.
