Debris likely from DPRK missile washes ashore in Tottori

Asahi and most other Saturday papers reported on an announcement on Friday by the government of Tottori Prefecture that debris likely from a North Korean missile washed ashore in the prefecture. A metallic object, measuring about 1.8 meters in length and 1.2 m in width, was found on June 16 by a prefectural government official. The object reportedly resembles an object recovered by South Korea after the February 7 launch of a long-range missile by North Korea. Defense Minister Nakatani told reporters that it cannot be ruled out that the debris came from a North Korean missile.
