North Korea Launches Two Missiles

CNN – North Korea fired two projectiles Sunday that “appear to be short-range missiles” into the sea off the eastern coast of the Korean peninsula, a South Korean defense ministry official told CNN.

The launch took place shortly before 5 a.m. (4 p.m. ET Saturday), according to the official. The projectile’s estimated range is 500 km (310 miles).

This is the second reported launch by North Korea in recent days.

On Thursday, U.S. and South Korean government officials reported North Korea had launched three projectiles from its southeastern coast.

North Korea has launched missiles several times in the past, often while South Korea is interacting with foreign powers.
