North Korea fires 2 ‘unidentified projectiles’ into Sea of Japan
The unidentified projectiles – presumed to be short-range ballistic missiles – were fired early on Saturday morning, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff. Japan’s Coast Guard also noted that the missiles appear to have landed in the ocean somewhere beyond its territorial waters.
The launch took place around 6:45am local time, with the munitions traveling some 410km (255 miles) before falling, Seoul’s military said, slamming the North for what it called a “very inappropriate” demonstration.Also on rt.com North Korea's Kim shows no panic appearing WITHOUT protective gear, surrounded by ALL-MASKED officers during military drills
If confirmed, the apparent missile test would be Pyongyang’s third since the beginning of the year, and comes weeks after the United States and South Korea were forced to postpone joint military exercises in late February due to the spread of the lethal coronavirus. North Korea has yet to report a single case of the illness.
