United States To Test Anti-Missile System In Alaska

The US military is preparing to conduct another test of a missile-intercept system in Alaska, the Pentagon said Monday, amid continued tensions with North Korea over its ballistic missile program.

Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said a routine test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system had been scheduled to go ahead "soon."

"These tests are done as a routine measure to make sure that the system is ready," he said.

"They are scheduled well in advance of any other real world geopolitical events going on."

In yet another provocative behaviour, Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile but it did not leave North Korean territory, the Pentagon has confirmed, terming it as a failed attempt.

"The US Pacific Command detected what we assess was a North Korean missile launch at 10:33 AM Hawaii time APR 28. The ballistic missile launch occurred near the Pukchang airfield," Dave Benham, PACOM spokesman said in a statement.

"The missile did not leave North Korean territory," Benham said.
