    North Korea fired short-range projectile: South Korea

    March 29, Seoul: North Korea has fired a short-range projectile from an area near its eastern coast in what appeared to be another weapons test seen as a response to ongoing military drills between Washington and Seoul, South Korea said.

    South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said that the projectile was fired Tuesday from an area near the North Korean port city of Wonsan and flew about 200 kilometers (125 miles) toward an inland area in the country's northwest, media reported.

    It is unclear whether the projectile crashed inland or overflew its target and landed in the sea. He said it also was unclear whether the projectile was a ballistic missile or artillery shell, an official with the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

    North Korea usually test-fires its missiles and artillery into the sea.
