US aircraft carrier repositions between S. Korea, Japan after Pyongyang's missile launches

A US aircraft carrier will reposition east of North Korea after Pyongyang flew a missile over Japan, South Korean military said on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the South Korean military called it a "very unusual" move designed to show the resolve between the allies to respond to any threats from North Korea. US-Indo-Pacific Command did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The USS Ronald Reagan had made its first stop in South Korea last month for the first time in years, and will be accompanied by its strike group of other warships.

Earlier in the day, South Korean and American troops had fired a volley of missiles into the sea, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said, and the allies earlier staged a bombing drill with fighter jets in the Yellow Sea.
