THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: NoKor fires projectiles into Sea of Japan

According to the South Korean Defense Ministry, North Korea has fired six short-range projectiles into the Sea of Japan.

The projectiles reported to be either rockets or missiles and they flew about 100 to 150km before falling into the sea. They were fired at around 1000 hours local time from Wonsan on the east coast.

The ministry says the launch was possibly an act of defiance against the toughest-ever UNSC sanctions against North Korea imposed hours earlier.  

South Korea is on alert over the possibility of another provocation by the NoKor in the near future and the annual joint military exercise with the United States is set on Monday,
