N Korea fired two ballistic missiles: US defense official


WASHINGTON: North Korea fired not one but two ballistic missiles in its latest violation of UN resolutions, a US defense official said Thursday.

“The US tracked the launch of two ballistic missiles from North Korea. Both are believed to be Nodong MRBMs,” the official said on condition of anonymity, referring to medium range ballistic missiles.

South Korea said earlier that North Korea had fired what appeared to be one medium range missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday.
