North Korea test-fired three missiles into the sea on Saturday, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
The launch occurred at a site in the North’s border town of Wonsan, it said. The missiles were presumed to have landed about 210 kilometres out in the East Sea.
“The military is staying vigilant and paying attention to movements of the North Korean military in case of an additional launch,” an officer was quoted as saying by Yonhap news agency.
The officer said it was presumed to be a new type of tactical missile.
“We have concluded that the short-range missiles fired on August 14 and September 1 were novel tactical missiles,” he said.
