A South Korean Defense Ministry official Told CNN that North Korea has fired two rockets into the sea.
At around 6:30 a.m. and 6:40 a.m. Monday, two missiles were fired from North Korea’s west coast toward the sea east of the Korean Peninsula.
North Korea frequently tests short-range missiles off its coast as part of military drills.
The United Nations has imposed sanctions banning North Korea from launching longer-range ballistic missiles.
The two projectiles were estimated to have flown about 490 kilometers (304 miles) before falling into the sea, according to the official who wanted to stay anonymous citing, government policy.
The missiles were fired as the United States and South Korea began annual military drills.
