North Korea fires several short-range missiles
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff says that North Korea has launched "several" short-range missiles off its eastern coast.
The military said in a statement Saturday that the missiles flew up to 125 miles before they landed in the water.
The firing Saturday comes amid a diplomatic breakdown that has followed the failed summit earlier this year between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the North's pursuit of a nuclear arsenal that can target the U.S. mainland.
South Korean and U.S. authorities are analyzing the details of the launch.
