Just six days after North Korea test-fired two dozen missiles, the Stalinist nation has conducted another firing, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.
Reuters reports that "the rockets, which are believed to be old Soviet-developed FROG rockets that North Korea has had since the 1960s, flew for 60 km (37 miles) before crashing into the sea, Yonhap said.
"Six days ago, North Korea had fired 25 short-range rockets into the sea off its east coast.
"South Korea believes the short-range rocket launches conducted by North Korea this month are an "armed protest" against the South Korean-U.S. military drills that are currently taking place.
"The North has denounced the joint military exercises as a preparation for war while Seoul and Washington have said the annual drills are defensive in nature."
