North Korea launches projectiles in weapons test

North Korea launched multiple projectiles in the country’s second weapons test in a week, South Korean sources said.

The projectiles were launched from Sondok, flew northeast, South Korean defense officials said. Some projectiles reportedly flew up to 124 miles.

The office of South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in, said it was a “large-scale” military drill.

The launches appeared to be part of a live-fire winter military training drill that included various types of multiple-rocket launchers.

The tests followed other North Korean military exercises on February 28 and March 2.

South Korean officials accused the North last week of raising military tensions.
