• S. Korea calls North missile tests calculated provocation


    SEOUL: South Korea on Friday labelled North Korea’s test firing of four short-range missiles a calculated, provocative act timed to coincide with South-United States joint military exercises. North Korea test-fired the missiles into the Sea of Japan on Thursday, three days after the joint drills kicked off in the face of vocal opposition from Pyongyang. Ministry spokesman Kim Min-Seok Kim said the tests were of Scud-type missiles at the longer edge of the short-range spectrum, with an estimated reach of 300 to 800 kilometers—capable of striking any target in the South.
