WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– North Korea continued development of its missile program and launched two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, the Washington Times reported.
The missiles, presumed to Scud-series missiles, were fired from the southwest Hwanghae province and flew across the country before landing in the ocean, the official said requesting anonymity citing department rules. The missiles have a range of 310 miles, he said.
North Korea has conducted an unusually large number of test-firings of missiles, artillery and rockets since earlier this year. South Korean officials have confirmed about 90 such firings by North Korea since Feb. 21 and 10 of them have been ballistic launches, according to Seoul’s Defense Ministry. — Source
