N. Korea test-fires suspected missile into sea


SEOUL: North Korea test-fired what appeared to be a short-range missile into the sea off its east coast on Monday in the latest of a series of missile and rocket tests, military officials said. It was launched at 10:30 a.m. (1:30 a.m. Manila time) from a site northeast of Pyongyang towards the Sea of Japan (East Sea) and flew about 220 kilometers (130 miles), the South’s joint chiefs of staff said. Details were not given, but a military official told Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity: “North Korea appeared to have test-fired a new tactical or short-range Scud missile.”
