North Korea launches second projectile in less than a week
For the second time in less than a week, North Korea launched suspected short-range missiles, according to South Korea’s military.
The projectiles were fired Thursday from near a military base about 50 miles from North Korea’s capital Pyongyang. There were few other details immediately available.
State media in North Korea said that on Saturday the nation held a short-range ballistic missile test as part of a regularly scheduled defensive military exercise. It was the country’s first such test in more than a year and came amid what appear to be stalled denuclearization talks between Pyongyang and Washington.
