North Korea fires 2 ballistic missiles off east coast

North Korea launched two ballistic missiles off its east coast on Wednesday — two days after the country said it successfully test-fired new long-range cruise missiles, South Korea’s military said.

The latest missiles were fired into waters off the Korean Peninsula’s east coast, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Japan’s coast guard said the missiles landed in the waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula outside of the Japanese Exclusive Economic Zone.

No ships or aircraft reported damage, the Coast Guard said.
