North Korea’s ballistic missile test on Tuesday flew directly over Japanese territory. The Self Defense Force said it didn’t shoot it down because it was not in danger of hitting anywhere in the country.

    North Korea's ballistic missile test on Tuesday flew directly over Japanese territory.

    The Self Defense Force said it didn't shoot it down because it was not in danger of hitting anywhere in the country.

    But the provocative act did reignite a discussion about Japan's pacifist constitution.
