North Korea fires two ballistic missiles into East Sea: JCS
BBC News says North Korea has fired two ballistic missiles into the East Sea, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirmed, according to Yonhap News.
The JCS had earlier announced that an unidentified projectile had been fired.
The Japanese Coast Guard also reported an object was fired, and that it may have been a ballistic missile.
Ballistic missile tests contravene UN resolutions designed to curb the North’s nuclear activities. South Korea and Japan gave no further details.
It comes just days after North Korea tested a long-range cruise missile capable of hitting much of Japan.
