N.Korea angered by U.S.-S.Korea military drills, fires missiles off coast

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea fired two short-range missiles off its eastern coast on Monday, South Korean officials said, a defiant response to annual joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States, but one which drew a swift protest from Japan. The firing came hours before the U.S.-South Korean military exercises were scheduled to begin, drills which the secretive North denounces as a preparation for war. The missiles landed in the sea between the Korean Peninsula and southern Japan early on Monday morning after traveling for about 490 km (305 miles), according to South Korea's Defense Ministry. #Argentina #Brazil #France #India #Latin America #markets #Mexico #North Korea #opinion #Russia #United Kingdom
