Fury Over North Korea's False Rocket Attack in Seoul, South Korea

A mistaken emergency evacuation warning was broadcast across Seoul, South Korea, over

On Wednesday, a North Korean missile launch caused global fear.

According to the NDTV article, it caused internet services to breakdown and increased concerns that the nation's leadership could not be relied upon to manage a genuine emergency.

The alarm was stated, which said: “Citizens, please prepare to evacuate and allow children and the elderly to evacuate first.” It was delivered at 6:41 am local time to all mobile phones in Seoul.

The statement said, “The message did not explain why residents should leave or where they should go; Seoul has long had a network of underground bomb shelters, but they have never been used in an emergency.”

The biggest internet site in South Korea, Naver, was quoted in the article as saying that because of the surge in traffic brought on by the warning, its network fell down for around five minutes.

It claimed that the authorities revoked the advisory after around 20 minutes of uncertainty.

We would like to tell you that the alert that was dispatched at 06:41 was sent in error.

Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon was called upon to quit on social media after the retraction, according to the statement.

According to the report, the warning was sent off when North Korea fired a rocket carrying a spy satellite into the ocean.

The South Korean military subsequently verified that the aircraft did indeed fly over seas to the west of the peninsula and not over the Seoul metropolitan area.
