A projectile fired by North Korea just before noon Tuesday was likely a median-range ballistic missile, U.S. Pacific Command said in a news release.

PACOM said it detected and tracked the missile and determined there was no threat to North America.

The missile was tracked for just under 10 minutes, when it landed in teh Sea of Japana.

"U.S. Pacific Command is fully committed to working closely with our Republic of Korea and Japanese allies to maintain security," said PACOM Commander Dave Benham.
