1. North Korea fires additional missiles into sea

North Korea continued its recent barrage of threats on Saturday by launching at least four ballistic missiles into the sea toward the South Korean coast. The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the short-range missiles were fired from a North Korean base, and ended up flying around 80 miles in the direction of South Korea's western sea. The launch prompted the U.S. to send a pair of supersonic bomber planes soaring across the region, in an effort to show up the North Korean military strategy. It is believed that the North Koreans launched the missiles in response to a recent joint U.S.-South Korean military exercise.
