Japanese national broadcaster NHK has sent out a false text warning of a nuclear attack from North Korea.
According to CNN, the message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read: "NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground. "
The broadcaster has since apologized, noting that there was no government alert.
This error falls on the heels of a similar false warning in Hawaii on Saturday that was broadcast to cellphones located on the island state.
"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL," the emergency alert read.
