North Korea fired two short-range Scud missiles into its eastern waters Sunday, a South Korean official said, in an apparent test just days after the country tested what it called new precision-guided missiles.
A South Korean military official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department rules, said the missiles were fired from Wonsan and are presumed to be short-range Scud ballistic missiles.
The official added that the military is determining what kind of Scud missiles the projectiles were.
Pyongyang's missile program as reported by BBC News:
Mainly been developed from the Scud, first supplied via Egypt in 1976.
