North Korea fires two short-range ballistic missiles into seaEarlier today we reported on how North Korea ramped up threats against the United States threatening to “tear to pieces the Stars and Stripes” and now it appears they are sending more threats as North Korea has fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said. The missiles were fired from North Korea’s west coast toward the sea east of the Korean Peninsula around 6:30 a.m. and 6:40 a.m. Monday (4:30 p.m. and 4:40 p.m. ET Sunday), the official said. They were fired from an area near Nampo City, located about 60 kilometers (37 miles) southwest of Pyongyang. The two projectiles were estimated to have flown about 490 kilometers (304 miles) before falling into the sea, according to the South Korean official, who asked to remain anonymous citing government policy.
