North Korea fires 2 ballistic missiles into eastern waters

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea fired two ballistic missiles into waters off its eastern coast Wednesday afternoon, two days after claiming to have tested a newly developed missile in a resumption of its weapons displays after a six-month lull. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles were launched from central North Korea, and Japan's coast guard said they landed outside its exclusive economic zone in the waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula. Seoul said South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities are analyzing more details about the launches, and that the South had boosted its anti-North Korea surveillance.
