North Korea appears to have fired a missile that passed over Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday.

Japan didn’t attempt to shoot down the missile, according to national broadcaster NHK. The missile may have fallen into the Pacific Ocean east of Hokkaido and broken up into three parts, NHK said.

Separately, North Korea may have fired several missiles, according to Japan’s national broadcaster. The missiles likely landed off the eastern coast of Hokkaido.
