North Korea fires another barrage of ballistic missiles as tensions flare with South Korea

Seoul: The South Korean military on Thursday accused North Korea of firing yet another barrage of short-range ballistic missiles towards its eastern sea, days after its attempt to launch a military spy satellite ended in failure and drew strong condemnation from its rivals. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said it detected 10 North Korean projectiles coming from an area near its capital Pyongyang.

The South Korean military said the suspected ballistic missiles flew around 350 km before in landing in waters off the North’s eastern coast. The South Korean military has increased surveillance and is closely sharing information with the United States and Japan. A maritime safety advisory was issued by Japan’s coast guard that urged ships to exercise caution if they found any fallen objects.
