North Korea fires cruise missiles again

South Korea’s military says it has detected that North Korea fired multiple cruise missiles into waters off its northeastern coast, marking its fifth test of such weapons since January.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff did not specify on Wednesday the exact number of missiles fired or their range.

North Korea continues launching missiles

It is the sixth missile launch by North Korea this year, including the Jan. 14 test of the country’s first intermediate-range solid-fuel missile.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are at their highest point in years after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un accelerated his weapons demonstrations to a record pace and issued threats of nuclear conflict with South Korea and the United States.
