(Worthy News) - Another false alarm about a North Korean ballistic missile, and this time in Japan. On Tuesday, Japanese national broadcaster NHK issued an on-air apology for issuing an alert incorrectly claiming that Kim Jong Un's regime had fired a ballistic missile.

"NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground," the message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read.

Minutes later the broadcaster apologized for the error, saying: "The news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake. No government J alert was issued." [ Source: IB Times (Read More...) ]
