North Korea fires 'several projectiles' into Sea of Japan

North Korea has fired three short-range ballistic missiles into sea following South Korea's military drill along with the U.S., global media reported.

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles were fired from an area from the North's eastern coast and flew about 250 kilometers into the Sea of Japan.

"As an update to our initial release, the first and third missiles at 11:49 a.m. and 12:19 p.m. did not 'fail in flight, ' Cmdr".

North Korea's last nuclear test came in September, when it detonated what it claimed was a miniaturized nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a missile, though analysts say the claim is almost impossible to verify.

South Korea's presidential office says the USA and South Korean militaries will proceed with their ongoing war games "even more thoroughly" in response to North Korea's latest short-range missile launches.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency and Japan's Kyodo news service said it may have been a ballistic missile, without citing a source.

The U.S. Pacific Command says its assessments indicate that the three missiles failed. The range would also be sufficient to reach Seongju, a South Korean town where the United States has begun installing an advanced missile-defense system known as THAAD.

"We understand that today's action indicated North Korea consistently continues developing nuclear weapons and missiles".

Solid-fuel missiles are faster and easier to deploy, and harder to detect because there's less to be done in terms of launch preparation.
