N. Korea to test missiles again?

N. Korea to test missiles again?

North Korea may conduct another missile test on Saturday, according to reports in South Korea. It comes after the country test-fired at least one short-range missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday.

Fears of another test were prompted when North Korea issued a no-sail warning to ban ships from the seas off its west coast on Saturday  

South Korea and the U.S. had played down Friday’s test, saying they were part of a military exercise. 

However, the country’s missile development and nuclear programme have long been a concern for the international community.

Last month North Korea displayed a new ballistic missile capable of reaching U.S territory.
