It was South Korea's third defeat in the last five qualification games and left hopes of progressing to a ninth successive World Cup uncertain. (AP Photo/Tertius Pickard, File)

North Korea fired a solid-fuel ballistic missile Sunday, May 21, 2017, that can be harder for outsiders to detect before launch and later said the test was hailed as perfect by leader Kim Jong Un. The official Korean Central News Agency confirmed Monday, May 22, the missile was a Pukguksong-2, a medium-to-long range ballistic missile also launched in February. South Korea and the U.S. had earlier described Sunday's missile as medium-range. (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon, File)
