North Korea has fired two missiles off its eastern coast, according to the South Korean military. It comes just days after Pyongyang tested what it says were new precision-guided missiles.

"The North fired two missiles into the East Sea (Sea of Japan) at about 5:00 am from the country's east coast," a defense ministry spokesman told AFP.

The rockets fired were short-range Scud missiles with a range of about 500 kilometers, Yonhap news agency cited a military official as saying.

Japan has already voiced protest against the test firing.

On Thursday, Pyongyang fired what were believed to be three short-range missiles into the sea in an apparent show of force ahead of a visit to Seoul by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
North Korea has recently expressed anger with alleged South Korean artillery test-fires near a disputed maritime boundary in the Yellow Sea.

[quote name='jimhardpeka' time='29.06.2014 04:59']No wonder North Korea is angry. America killed millions of innocent North Korean people during the Korean War. There are many good aspects of "Juche". It means "Self Reliance".[/quo te]

Y ou need to open a real history book not the nonsense they teach in US schools.

Is this supposed to cause me concern? If the West goes about the world killing women and children and sanctioning peaceful countries with the intent of making innocent women and children suffer, this sort of result is no surprise. Force seems to be the only language the West understands.
