"The launch came three days after North Korea fired three short-range projectiles into the East Sea."
Seoul, June 29 - North Korea Sunday fired two short-range ballistic missiles into waters off its east coast, a South Korean military official said.

North Korea fired each missile from the vicinity of Wonsan, Gangwon Province, at about 4:50 a.m. and 4:58 a.m. into the East Sea, Xinhua quoted the official as saying.

Their range was about 500 km, the official added.

According the official, North Korea fired the missiles without designating no-sail zones, which the South Korean military view as a clear provocation.

The missiles landed in international waters north-east of the East Sea, the official said.

The launch came three days after North Korea fired three short-range projectiles into the East Sea.

It also marks North Korea's 11th firing of short-range missiles and the fourth ballistic missile launch this year.
