North Korea fires two suspected ballistic missiles: South K


Pyongyang: North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, South Korea said on Thursday, as nuclear-armed Pyongyang steps up weapons testing and bolsters its defences in the face of what it claims is a “hostile” United States.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced the launch – the sixth this month – in a text message sent to reporters, Yonhap news agency reported.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said it detected the launch from in and around Hamhung, a city on the east coast, at approximately 8am (23:00 GMT), Yonhap news agency reported. It did not elaborate further.
