(Oct 2): North Korea fired what appeared to be a submarine-based ballistic missile off its eastern coast Wednesday in an escalation that came just hours after saying it would resume stalled nuclear talks with the US.

South Korea’s military said North Korea may have fired a submarine-based ballistic missile, which traveled 450 kilometers (280 miles) and reached an altitude of 910 kilometers. Japan earlier said two ballistic missiles were launched Wednesday, with one one appearing to land in its exclusive economic zone off Shimane prefecture.

A submarine-based missile test would mark an escalation from the series of short-range launches that North Korea started in May, involving land-based missiles. It was the first time the regime would’ve fired a submarine-based missile since 2016, which South Korea said flew about 500 kilometers.
