July 9 , 2014
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.
