THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: N.Korea fired 2 Rodong missiles

Sourced from NHK World:

The US military says that the 2 projectiles North Korea fired appear to have been Rodong-type medium-range ballistic missiles.

The US Strategic Command said it detected the launches from North Korea at 22:53 UTC on Tuesday.

Its analysis shows that the missiles were fired almost simultaneously from near Hwangju in the province of North Hwanghae in the country's west.

It says there are initial indications that one missile exploded immediately after launch and that the other fell into the Sea of Japan.

Meanwhile, the US State Department strongly condemned the latest launches.

It said the United States remains prepared to work with its allies and partners around the world to respond to further North Korean provocations. It added that the launches would only increase the international community's resolve to counter actions by the North.
