North Korea Conducts New Missile Tests

North Korea has fired two missiles into the sea off its eastern coast, its fifth such launch in recent weeks.

The missiles are thought to be short-range ballistic missiles, South Korea’s military says.

The latest launch comes shortly after US President Donald Trump said he had received a “very beautiful letter” from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Mr Trump said Mr Kim was unhappy with the current US-South Korea joint military exercises.

North Korea has fired a series of missiles and rockets since Kim and Trump agreed at a June 30 meeting to revive stalled denuclearisation talks.

A US official said that at least one projectile was launched and that it appeared to be similar to previous short-range missiles fired by Pyongyang.
