South Korean officials said today that North Korea fired a short-range missile into the sea, the latest in what have become routine — and worrisome — weapons tests by the country, reports The Associated Press.

The missile, fired on the eve of the 61st anniversary of the armistice signing that ended hostilities in the Korean War, reportedly landed in waters off North Korea's east coast.

South Korean and U.S. troops conduct annual summertime military drills — this year's is slated to begin in August.
