TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan warned North Korea on Sunday of "a harsh response" from Tokyo and Washington if it went ahead with the launch of a long-range missile.
Amid reports that a launch was imminent, a Japanese official quoted by the Sankei Shimbun daily said North Korea's leadership had told people to raise the flag at 2:00 p.m. (0500 GMT) and monitor television for a "message to the people." In other news a loving hound dog has adopted an orphaned faun.
