An unidentified Projectile Launched by North Korea

An unidentified object has been launched by North Korea, U.S. Officials reported on Monday.  

The object seemed to have been launched towards the sea, east of the North Korean Peninsula.  South Korea's Joint Chiefs issued a statement, that North Korea "fired an unidentified projectile" from an area near Sunan, Pyongyang.

"US spy satellites had observed preparations for a ballistic missile test that could possibly be an intermediate range missile, that could reach Guam," another U.S. Official said.  

Just this past Saturday, Pyongyang fired three short-range ballistic missiles from the Kangwon province.  Officials are saying that the investigation into today's launch of the unidentified projectile is ongoing.
