N. Korea Reportedly Test Fires 2 Missiles

  • VOA News

North Korea has apparently test fired two missiles off its east coast into the Sea of Japan.

The Japanese and South Korean news agencies are reporting the launch early Sunday, but have given no details.

The reported launch comes two days after the North says it tested what it says were "cutting-edge ultra-precision tactical guided missiles."

North Korea frequently uses missile tests as a reaction to criticism or military exercises from South Korea or the United States.

Some information for this report comes from AP and AFP.
