North Korea has fired two short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast, the second such launch in a week.
South Korea’s Military says the two missiles were launched from the Wonsan area early on Wednesday.
The missiles flew 250km (155 miles) and reached a height of 30km before landing in the Sea of Japan, also known as the east sea, said South Korea’s joint chiefs of staff (JCS).
The South Korean Defence Minister Jeong Kyeong-Doo said the missiles were identified as a different type from previous models.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe confirmed that there was no impact on Japan’s security following the launch.
Last week’s launch was the first such action since US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN met in June.
