N Korea tests more missiles amid S Korea-US exercises
« on: March 03, 2014, 02:37:21 AM »
Via the BBC:

North Korea has test-fired two more short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast, South Korean defence ministry officials say, amid ongoing South Korea-US military exercises.

Officials in Seoul said the missiles flew more than 500km (300 miles).

Pyongyang also test-fired four similar missiles late last week.

North Korea often carries out short-range missiles tests to show its anger at military exercises involving its southern neighbour.

South Korea and the US began the annual joint exercises on 24 February. The drills, which involve thousands of troops, continue until the middle of April.

Pyongyang is opposed to the drills and has previously called them "exercises of war".

South Korean officials said that the missiles, launched early on Monday morning, were Scud-C models. They have the range to hit any target in South Korea.
