South Korea's defence ministry said the missile, which was launched days after Pyongyang warned of retaliation if the global community ramps up sanctions had flown 60km. "The weapon fire control system of the current North Korean tanks is falling behind the technology, so to secure enough range for that system, they would have to fire the missile only in vast open terrain".

Carrie Fisher to appear in Star Wars: Episode IX?

Honoring their collective memory is no easy task, but it's one that Todd Fisher , Carrie's brother, and Debbie's son, intends to take on with pride. Or unused footage from The Force Awakens could be spliced into the story. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. And if Leia's last appearance is rendered via hologram, perhaps from R2-D2 - well, that would bring a fitting circularity to the Star Wars universe.

Moment Donald Trump's Tomahawk missile was launched from USS Porter onto Syria

Speaking from his Mar-a-Lago estate, President Trump said the strike was justified because President Assad has for years refused to stop using "deadly chemical weapons", possibly sarin, against his own people.
