North Korea fired a ballistic missile over a Japanese island in its latest act of aggression, sending panicked residents underground as they took shelter.

The rocket flew over Hokkaido at around 6 a.m. local time on Tuesday and crashed into the sea.

Residents found out about the emergency when the Japanese government warned: “A missile was fired from North Korea. Please evacuate to a sturdy building or basement.”

Loudspeakers and sirens went off in many northern towns, with a chilling video revealing how one neighbourhood was warned of a possible missile attack.

South Korea later dropped bombs near the border and threatened to “exterminate” North Korea’s leadership if its citizens are threatened.

US President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang that “all options are on the table” as the world considers how to respond.
