North Korea has launched at least one missile into South Korea’s East Sea, Seoul said Wednesday.
Southern Joint Chiefs of Staff did not disclose how far the missile had flown.
The launch comes after a recent flurry of North Korean weapons demonstrations, including dozens of launches last week in response to a massive combined US-South Korean air drill that the North slammed as evidence of invasion.

Wednesday’s missile launch also comes during the midterm elections in the United States. Some experts have said the findings are unlikely to change the Biden administration’s policies on North Korea.
