Seoul reports new ballistic test from North Korea

SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea fired a ballistic missile off its east coast on Wednesday, the South Korean military said on Thursday amid tensions in the region amid joint US maneuvers and Pyongyang’s condemnation of South Korea. North Korea has ramped up tests in recent days, claiming a threat to its security in a massive joint exercise by the US and South Korean armies that began on Monday. North Korea’s official press reported on Tuesday that Pyongyang had launched two strategic ballistic missiles, raising the level of its preparedness in the event of an armed conflict.
