South Korea: North Korea fires 5th projectile into waters

SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea says North Korea has fired a short-range projectile into its own eastern waters – for the fifth time in three days.

Pyongyang regularly conducts short-range missile tests. Analysts say these recent launches appear to be weapons tests or an attempt to get U.S. and South Korean attention amid tentative signs of diplomacy after soaring tensions that followed U.N. sanctions aimed at a nuclear test Pyongyang conducted in February.

Seoul’s Defense Ministry says the latest projectile had similar ballistic trajectory as launches Saturday and Sunday. Seoul is analyzing whether the projectiles were missiles or a new type of artillery.

North Korea said Monday its rocket tests are part of drills to bolster deterrence against what it calls U.S. and South Korean threats to attack the North.
