North Korea test-fires missile after criticising US aircraft carrier move

North Korea fired two suspected short-range ballistic missiles toward waters where a US aircraft carrier had been deployed, ratcheting up tensions in the region.
The missile launches off North Korea’s east coast Thursday added to one of its biggest barrage of tests under leader Kim Jong Un, including its first launch of a rocket over Japan in five years. It came shortly after North Korea condemned the Biden administration for redeploying the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier group to waters east of the peninsula, saying the move escalated tensions. The group first arrived in the South Korean port of Busan in late September and conducted drills that included Japan and South Korea.
