The Japan Times

North Korea fired at least two unidentified projectiles toward the Sea of Japan on Thursday, the South Korean military said. The Japanese Defense Ministry said the projectiles were thought to be ballistic missiles, adding that they were not believed to have fallen into Japan's exclusive economic zone or territory. "Our military is monitoring the situation in case of additional launches and maintaining a readiness posture," the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. It was the 12th time that the nuclear-armed North has carried out a major weapons test this year, with the last test-firing taking place on Oct. 2, when it tested a submarine-launched ballistic missile.

North Korea fired an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast, South Korea's military said. South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported the projectile launched appeared to be a ballistic missile. The launch took place at a region named Kusong which is located northwest of the capital, Pyongyang, where the North previously test-launched its intermediate-range missile it is believed to be developing. The launch, if confirmed to be test-firing of a ballistic missile, is the first in two weeks since the last attempt to fire a missile ended in a failure just minutes into flight. The North attempted but failed to test-launch ballistic missiles four consecutive times in the past two months but has conducted a variety of missile testing since the beginning of last year at an unprecedented pace.
