North Korea fires short-range missile along its coast
North Korea test-fired a short-range missile on its east coast on Tuesday, South Korea's military said, amid heightened tension over the isolated country's nuclear and rocket programs.
The missile was fired from near the North Korean coastal town of Wonsan at 5:40 p.m. (0840 GMT) and flew northeast for about 200 km (124 miles) and then "made contact" with the mainland, South Korea's military said in a statement.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has presided over a string of short-range missile launches in recent weeks in what the communist-ruled nation's state media has characterized as a response to U.N. sanctions imposed for its fourth nuclear test in January.
The U.S. State Department said it was aware of the report of the missile firing.
