    North Korea fires two short-range missiles

    March 10, Seoul: North Korea has fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea on Thursday, as South Korea and the United States conducted massive war games.

    Korea's military said that the missiles, launched off the east coast, flew some 500km (310 miles) and fell into the water.

    Shortly after the launch, Pyongyang announced it "nullifies" all inter-Korean cooperative projects and will liquidate South Korean assets in the country, media reports said.

    Most South Korean assets in the North are in the Kaesong industrial zone.

    According to South Korea's defence ministry, North Korea has a large stockpile of short-range missiles and is developing long-range and intercontinental missiles as well. The missiles fired on Thursday flew about 500 km (300 miles) off its east coast city of Wonsan and were likely from the Soviet-developed Scud series,.
