North Korea fires suspected missiles into ocean

At least two unidentified projectiles were fired from North Korea’s eastern coast early on Thursday — traveling about 260 miles to the east.

That’s according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Japanese government sources say the projectiles were short-range ballistic missiles.

The White House, Pentagon and U.S. State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Thursday marks the first missile test reported since U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met at the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas at the end of June.

The U.S. and North Korea recently agreed to hold fresh talks… but since then, the isolated country has sharply criticized upcoming joint military drills by U.S the South Korean troops.

On Tuesday, North Korea’s state news agency reported that Kim visited a factory and inspected a large, newly built submarine, accompanied by missile program leaders... potentially signaling continued development of a submarine-launched ballistic missile program.
