North Korea Fires 2 Short-Range Missiles Into Sea

3 March 2014

North Korea fired two short-range missiles on Monday into the sea off the east coast of the Korean peninsula, South Korea’s defense ministry said, days after launching similar rockets last week. South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said the missiles likely flew about 500 km after being launched off the North’s east coast, adding they were believed to be Scud-C models. South Korea’s defense ministry has said the Scuds are normally fired using mobile launch pads which can be activated with minimal preparation. Launches by the North of short-range missiles are not uncommon as part of regular military exercises.—Reuters
