The Japanese Government has reportedly conducted a civilian missile evacuation drill in the wake of increasing missile threats from North Korea.

Said to be the first of its kind, the drill aimed to make people aware of ballistic missile launches, media sources reported.

The drill involved warning people about a possible missile launch and requesting the participants to move to safe places.

On 6 March, North Korea test-fired four ballistic missiles, three of which fell into Japan’s exclusive economic zone.
