International Pressure on North Korea Increases After Missile Launched at Japan

Leaders around the world, prominently including U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, vowed to bring increased pressure to bear against North Korea after its reckless launch of a ballistic missile over Japanese territory on Monday afternoon.
