Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s military said North Korea has fired multiple cruise missiles into waters off its western coast, extending a provocative series of weapons tests in the face of deepening tensions with the United States, South Korea and Japan. The launches came hours after state media reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reiterated his focus on strengthening his naval forces as he inspected the construction of new warships at a western shipyard, calling such projects crucial to the country’s war preparations.  There was no immediate information on the exact number of missiles fired or how far they flew.
