North Korea Fires Ballistic Missile towards East Sea

TEHRAN(Tasnim) - North Korea fired an unspecified ballistic missile into the East Sea on Wednesday, ratcheting up tensions amid an ongoing South Korea-US naval exercise involving an American aircraft carrier.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff announced the launch without providing details, Yonhap news agency reported.

The launch came just three days after Pyongyang fired off a short-range ballistic missile into the East Sea.

Concerns have persisted that North Korea would engage in provocative acts like a nuclear test or a submarine-launched ballistic missile launch.

Wednesday's saber-rattling came as US Vice President Kamala Harris plans to visit Seoul later this week on a trip that the White House said is intended to underscore the strength of the alliance.
