North Korea fires 3 short-range missiles into East SeaUpdated: 2014-06-27 06:55:29 KST
North Korea fired three short-range projectiles off its east coast on Thursday afternoon, local time.
South Korea's defense ministry says the projectiles took off from near Wonsan, a coastal town east of Pyongyang, and flew roughly 2-hundred kilometers before landing in waters between North Korea and Japan.
South Korea is still trying to figure out what kind of projectiles they were and why they were fired.
North Korea has test-fired several short- and medium-range rockets and missiles in recent months and is threatening to conduct a new nuclear test.
