Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirms the U.S. believes North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile. "Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world." He calls for the world to act against this "global threat" and says the U.S. will bring this latest act before the UN Security Council.
