The US Navy conducted a test intercept on Wednesday of its SM-3 Block IIA missile, part of the larger Aegis Ashore missile defence system.

Pyongyang has test-fired ballistic missiles on lofted trajectories into the sea around Japan multiple times, and officials said it would be very hard for Japan's current anti-missile defense systems to shoot them down if they were to threaten the country's territory.
The missile, which is being developed by Raytheon Co, is used to target intermediate range missiles and is being developed with Japan.
The test was reportedly a failure according to administration officials, though the Pentagon has not confirmed the result.
It comes amid renewed fears over the nuclear ambitions of Mr Kim, who earlier this week ordered the test of a new long-range missile said to be capable of striking the entire U.S. mainland.

Last week, the agency released a report stating it was confident it could protect the small island from a "number" of North Korean missiles.
Meanwhile, at the end of a year ago, North Korea claimed to have a ballistic missile capable of striking anywhere in the USA, after it tested a weapon that flew higher and longer than any of its previous test launches.
These actions have prompted a stepped-up US-led campaign to toughen United Nations sanctions, which Pyongyang has called an act of war. Missile systems analysts have predicted that the missile launched by Pyongyang had flown to a range that was more than 8,000 miles and had the capacity of hitting Washington DC or any other city in the United States.
