North Korea flexed its military muscle Sunday, launching a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan ahead of planned US and South Korean drills and a visit to the region by Vice President Kamala Harris.

The missile was launched from the western town of Taechon and flew 370 miles across the country at a maximum height of 37 miles before landing into the sea, South Korea reported. There was no damage to Japanese naval targets, officials there said.
