North Korea Launches Ballistic Missile Test

The South Korean military says a ballistic missile fired by North Korea flew about 500 kilometres, landing in the Sea of Japan. Pyongyang has conducted a number of nuclear and missile test - both in breach of United Nations sanctions.

Also on the programme: one of the so-called Islamic State's strongholds in northern Syria looks like it's about to be seized by Turkish troops.

And Latin America's vast corruption scandal - and the Panama link.
