WW3 ALERT: North Korea fires ballistic missiles as Kim Jong-Un promises nuclear warhead testing
Two ballistic missiles were fired on Friday as the isolated state stepped up its defiance of tough new UN and US sanctions slapped on the country for its nuclear and rocket tests.
Five more were launched this morning off the country’s east coast. They flew 200km from south of the city of Hamhung and landing in waters east of North Korea, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The US brought in the sanctions following nuclear and rocket tests earlier this year.
Defiant North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said last week the country would soon test a nuclear warhead and ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
It is a direct violation of UN resolutions that have the backing of Pyongyang’s chief ally, China.
