SEOUL: North Korea launched multiple short-range projectiles into the sea on Monday as part of firing drills.

The projectiles were launched a week after it resumed missile tests following a three-month break, South Korea’s military said.

The projectiles, including from a multiple-launch rocket system (MLRS), flew up to 200 km (124 miles) and reached 50 km in altitude, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

They were launched from the eastern coastal town of Sondok, home to a military airfield where nuclear-armed North Korea fired missiles last year, the JCS said in a statement.

The JCS said the latest test appeared to be part of firing drills that have been underway since late last month and have been overseen by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Reuters reported.
