Seoul — North Korea fired three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan on Saturday, the South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

Japan’s Defense Ministry said that the three ballistic missiles from North Korea are believed to have fallen into waters outside Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

Pyongyang’s move followed the Dec. 23 launch of two short-range ballistic missiles.
