According to South Korean officials, North Korea fires two missiles into the sea. A South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff official says the projectiles were fired from the North Korean city of Kaesong near the border with the South, and he claims the missiles had a range of about 311 miles. South Korea says the most recent missile firings are the latest in a series of firings seen to be an expression of anger over its failure to win talks on receiving outside aid, and over ongoing U.S.-South Korean military drills.
