UN imposes sanctions on North Korea; NK fires projectiles

  • Just a day after the United Nations Security Council voted to impose tough sanctions on North Korea, the country fired six short-range projectiles. According to media reports, a press release from the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the projectiles flew about 62 to 92 miles of the Korean Peninsula. A South Korean Defense Ministry official said the military of South Korea is analyzing the situation. The UNSC had imposed the sanction because North Korea had defied the current international sanctions by undertaking a nuclear test and launching a missile.
