SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea fired several projectiles off its east coast on Wednesday, the second weapons test in less than a week, the South Korean military said.
The projectiles were launched from near Wonsan, a costal town east of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, the South Korean military said in a brief statement that provided no further details.
South Korean officials said they were still analyzing flight and other data to determine what type of projectiles were involved in the test.
North Korea launched two short-range missiles from near Wonsan last Thursday. Those missiles flew 430 kilometers (267 miles) and 690 kilometers (430 miles), before landing in waters between North Korea and Japan. South Korea later identified them as a new type of short-range ballistic missiles.
