SEOUL, May 27 —North Korea fired an unidentified projectile on a southern path off its west coast today, South Korea’s military said, hours after Pyongyang said it would be launching a satellite some time before June 4.

The Japanese government issued an emergency warning today for residents in the south to take cover from the possible threat of a North Korean missile, before lifting the warning and saying it was not expected to fly over Japanese territory.

Japan said over its J-Alert broadcasting system that North Korea appeared to have fired a missile, sending out the warning to residents in southern prefecture of Okinawa.

North Korea had earlier in the day notified Japan that it plans to launch a satellite between May 27 and June 4.
