North Korea fires two short-range missiles

  • In the fourth such test in just two weeks, North Korea is believed to have fired two short-range missiles into the sea.

    The missiles were launched from the country’s west into the Korean peninsula waters, South Korean officials said.

    The two missiles “presumed to be Scud-type ones” were launched from “a site in Hwanghae province in a north-easterly direction,” a South Korean spokesperson was quoted as saying.

    The projectiles flew for around 310 miles before landing in international waters, the official said.
