South Korea’s military has reported that North Korea fired three ballistic missiles early on Wednesday morning.
Authorities in Seoul, the capital of South Korea, said the missiles were fired in the space of less than an hour from the Sunan area in Pyongyang – North Korea’s capital city.
It came just a day after United States President, Joe Biden, left the region, following a trip that saw him vowing to increase measures to discourage North Korea.
Japan confirmed that at least two launches happened on Wednesday but acknowledged there may have been more, with Japanese Defence Minister, Nobuo Kishi, saying that the first missile flew about 300 kilometres with a maximum altitude of around 550 kilometres, while the second, reaching as high as 50 kilometres, travelled around 750 kilometres.
