Tokyo metro subway train North Korea – CWEB.com
One of Tokyo’s major subways systems says it shut down all lines for 10 minutes early Saturday after receiving warning of a North Korean missile launch. It was reported that Tokyo Metro official Hiroshi Takizawa told that the temporary suspension due to the North Korea treat affected 13,000 passengers. Service was halted on all nine lines at 6.07am. It resumed at 6.17am after it was clear there was no threat to Japan.
Takizawa says it was the first time service had been stopped in response to a missile launch. Train service is generally suspended in Japan immediately after large earthquakes. Tokyo Metro decided earlier this month to stop for missile launch warnings as well.
