They're not letting up. Pyongyang has fired a missile over Japan into the Pacific Ocean, traveling higher and farther than the previous launch last month, according to reports from South Korea

threatened to "sink" Japan and reduce the U.S. to "ashes and darkness" over Monday's round of increased U.N. sanctions. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on China and Russia, Pyongyang's main economic allies, to respond with "direct action" as the U.N. Security Council reconvenes today.
