The latest missile test by North Korea, one of its furthest-reaching yet, has split world powers who united behind new UN sanctions just days ago.

The US has urged the allies of North Korea, China and Russia to respond to North Korea's latest action saying that they should bear the burden of responding to the North.

However, China responded suggesting that the US was shirking its own responsibility, while Russia condemned "aggressive" US rhetoric.

The missile fired over Japan had the range to hit the US territory of Guam.

It reached an altitude of about 770km (478 miles), travelling 3,700km past Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido before landing in the sea, South Korea's military says.
