N. Korea fires several cruise missiles into West Sea


North Korea fired several cruise missiles toward the West Sea on Wednesday, the South Korean military said, the latest in a series of saber-rattling that heightened tensions.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff said the North’s launch took place around 7 a.m. but did not elaborate, citing an ongoing analysis.

“While strengthening our monitoring and vigilance, our military has been closely coordinating with the United States to monitor additional signs of North Korea’s provocations,” the JCS said in a text message sent to reporters.

According to sources, the missiles flew in a circular trajectory in waters west of the North Korean capital Pyongyang, similar to cruise missiles that fly at a lower altitude than ballistic missiles.
