North Korea fires ballistic missile into east waters

Seoul:

North Korea fired a ballistic missile into east waters from its western region, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on Wednesday.
The projectile was launched eastward from South Hwanghae province around 7.50 a.m. (local time), Yonhap news agency reported.

Further details were being analysed, the JCS said.

The launch came after North Korea test-fired two medium-range Rodong ballistic missiles and one shorter-range Scud missile on July 19 in an apparent protest against the decision between Seoul and Washington to deploy Terminal High Altitude Area Defence in South Korean soil.
