SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea has launched a short-range ballistic missile into the sea as it ramps up testing activities in response to ongoing U.S. and South Korean military exercises. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says the missile launched Sunday morning from North Korea’s northwestern region flew across the country before landing in waters off the east coast. The launch was the third round of North Korean weapons tests since the US and South Korean militaries began joint military exercises last week. The North views such drills as an invasion rehearsal. Top nuclear envoys from South Korea, Japan and the United States condemned the launch as a provocation that threatens peace on the Korean peninsula and in the region.
