Seoul: North Korea fires several projectiles to sea

America won't go to war with North Korea on purpose, but it might by accident

North Korea has fired three short-range ballistic missiles into sea following South Korea's military drill along with the USA, worldwide media reported.

The South Korean defence ministry said: "The military is keeping a tight surveillance over the North to cope with further provocations".

This latest North Korean missile test would be the 12th ballistic missile test this year.

In Tokyo, Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told reporters he believes North Korea fired "multiple short-range ballistic missiles or rockets".

The best option now is for North Korea to freeze its missile tests, along with the USA and South Korea imposing a moratorium on large-scale military exercises.

The 10-day Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises, which began August 21, are conducted annually and touted by South Korea and the United States as defensive in nature. It was not clear, however, whether the three missiles were fired from a single device or more than one.

The South Korean Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles flew in a northeasterly direction for about 250 kilometers (155 miles) into the sea.
