SEOUL (Reuters) - A ballistic missile that North Korea launched on Sunday flew about 500 kilometers, South Korea's military said, calling it North Korea's "show of force" against the hard-line stance of the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump on Pyongyang. "The flight distance was about 500 kilometers, and South Korea and the United States are conducting a close-up analysis on additional information," South Korea's Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. South Korea's presidential office said it called a national security meeting at 9:30 a.m. Seoul time. (Reporting by Ju-min Park; Editing by Leslie Adler)
