North Korea fires missiles into East Sea
North Korea launched two short-range missiles Thursday morning while North Korean military was conducting summer training, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff
North Korea fired two short-range missiles into the sea Thursday, South Korea’s military said, the first weapons launches in more than two months and an apparent pressuring tactic aimed at Washington as North Korean and U.S. officials struggle to restart nuclear negotiations.
The South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles that were fired from near the eastern coastal town of Wonsan flew about 430 kilometers (270 miles) before landing in the waters off the country’s east coast.
The U.S. and South Korean military authorities are analyzing more details.
