KENICHI YAMADA, Nikkei staff writer | North Korea

SEOUL -- North Korea's state media said on Tuesday that the country has successfully test-fired a new missile controlled by a precision guidance system under the oversight of leader Kim Jong Un.

The report did not say when the missile was launched. But it was apparently referring to a ballistic missile launched on Monday morning from a site near Wonsan in the eastern part of the country.
