Japan Self Defense Forces (SDF) began four days of live-fire drills near Mount Fuji, an annual exercise that comes this year the day after North Korea test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile. Tanks, artillery and hundreds of troops took part in the live-fire drills. Around 2,400 soldiers, tanks, field guns and helicopters were deployed at the Higashi-Fuji firing range in Gotemba, some 80km west of Tokyo, according to an AFP report. The drill came as North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un hailed his country's latest weapons test the "greatest success".
