This time it took place in Japan. As bizarre as the first false alarm was, to have a second happen so soon after smells of something else, don’t you think?
Japanese broadcaster apologizes after false North Korea missile alert
Tokyo (CNN) — Japanese national broadcaster NHK issued an on-air apology Tuesday after issuing an alert incorrectly claiming that North Korea had launched a ballistic missile.
The message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read: “NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground. “
The broadcaster apologized for the error, adding “the news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake. No government J alert was issued.” The mistake was corrected within minutes.
