More of the same from the North Koreans who continue to show their displeasure with the ongoing US-ROK computer game Key Resolve exercise:
North Korea fired two short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast Monday, Seoul’s defense ministry said, in its latest provocation seen as a reaction to the ongoing joint military drills between South Korea and the United States.
One missile was fired from the Gitdaeryeong area and the other from Wonsan, both on the North’s southeastern coast, in the northeast direction beginning at 6:19 a.m.
“The missiles are evaluated to have flown over 500 kilometers,” ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said in a briefing, adding they were believed to be of the Scud-C type.
It is the second such launch of the short-range missiles in a week. Last Thursday, Pyongyang fired four Scud missiles from the same area, which flew about 220 km in a northeast direction. [Yonhap]
