Reading Time: < 1 minute

North Korea Wednesday morning, fired multiple unidentified projectiles off its east coast.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff is quoted as saying that the launch was made from the Hodo peninsula local time.

It was not clear what type of projectiles they were. North Korea has so far made no comments on the issue.

Last week, North Korea fired two short-range missiles, according to the JCS

Both missiles reportedly travelled about 430km (267 miles), reaching an altitude of 50km, before falling into the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea.

Pyongyang has voiced anger over planned military exercises between South Korea and the US, an annual event.

The North warned they could affect the resumption of denuclearisation talks.
