N. Korea Fires Ballistic Missile toward Sea of Japan

   Seoul, May 17 (Jiji Press)--North Korea fired a ballistic missile toward the Sea of Japan on Friday, the South Korean military said.
   It was the first such launch by Pyongyang since the firing of short-range ballistic missiles April 22.
   North Korean media reported after that launch the country had conducted a firing drill involving super-large multiple rocket launchers, simulating a tactical nuclear counterattack.
   Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshimasa Hayashi told a press conference in Tokyo on Friday that no information has been confirmed of any projectile flight or damage to Japanese territory or the country's exclusive economic zone following the day's missile launch by North Korea.
