North Korea Launches Two More Ballistic Missiles

North Korea launched two more ballistic missiles off its east coast on Monday.

North Korea's state media confirmed it fired two projectiles from a multiple rocket launcher.

State news agency KCNA said; "The 600mm multiple rocket launcher mobilized in the firing is a means of tactical nuclear weapon, capable of paralyzing an enemy airfield."

The launches come just days after North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) into the sea off Japan's west coast, prompting the United States to hold joint air exercises with South Korea and Japan on Sunday.

Monday's missile launch is the North's third known weapon test this year.

This is after it fired an unprecedented number of missiles last year, including ICBMs capable of striking anywhere in the United States.
