North Korea tests 2 short range missiles again

North Korea launched two projectiles Thursday that are believed to have been short-range missiles, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, in what would be the second test of such missiles in the past five days.

The apparent missiles were launched from northwestern North Korea, far from the border that divides the Korean Peninsula, and they landed in the Sea of Japan/East Sea, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Citing a statement from the joint chiefs, the Korean outlet says the first projectile was launched at 4:29 p.m. local time and flew about 260 miles. The second was fired 10 minutes later and flew about 168 miles.

South Korea’s military initially said Thursday’s launch took place in an area near Sino-ri, which South Korean media report as having a medium-range missile base. It later clarified that the projectiles were fired from the town of Kusong, north of Sino-ri
