North Korea fires more projectiles into sea - Seoul

North Korea fired several projectiles into the East Sea, South Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

The projectiles were launched twice from the eastern coast of North Korea. So far it is no known how many were launched of how far they flew. "Our military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches while maintaining a readiness posture," the JCS said in a brief release.

Over the past weeks, Pyongyang conducted several ballistic tests as a sign of protests over the United States-South Korea military drills that the North sees as an invasion rehearsal.
