Misguided missile

North Korea launched a nuclear missile early this morning. The intended target was unknown but due to a likely navigational error, the missile completely destroyed a Chinese naval base in the South China sea. The nuclear inferno was estimated to be in the range of 35 to 40 kilotons, making it about twice as powerful as the explosion that destroyed Nagaski in the closing days of WW2. The island was known to be occupied by military personnel associated with the Chinese government but the number of victims is unknown.

North Korea admitted no responsibility for the attack, but U.S., South Korean and Japanese radar monitors independently confirmed the missile was lauched from somewhere near the DMZ.

Details are sketchy in this rapidly unfolding event. Please stay tuned for further updates.
