North Korea fires ‘unidentified projectile’

Agency News

Seoul, May 9: North Korea has fired at least one unidentified projectile, South Korea's military says, less than a week after it tested several short-range missiles.

The projectile was fired from the Sino-ri location north of the capital, Pyongyang, toward the east, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff. On Saturday, North Korea launched a number of projectiles from its east coast into the sea, said a BBC News report.

A US envoy has visited Seoul for talks on how to break the nuclear deadlock. In February, a meeting in Vietnam between the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and US President Donald Trump, ended without agreement.

President Trump walked away from what he described as a bad deal offered by Mr Kim. The projectile was fired at about 16:30 local time (07:30 GMT), the South Korean military said, without providing further details. "We're still analysing whether it is a single or multiple projectiles," spokesman Kim Joon-rak told.
