SEOUL, June 22. /TASS/. North Korea had launched two medium-range ballistic missiles from the area of the city of Wonsan on the country’s east coast, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff reported on Wednesday.
"North Korea launched what appeared to be two Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs) from its east coast early Wednesday morning, but the first test-firing is assumed to have been unsuccessful, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said," the Yonhap news agency reported. "At around 5:58 am, North Korea fired off what is presumed to be a Musudan missile from near Wonsan along the east coast, but the launch seems to have ended in failure, the JCS said, providing no further details. About two hours later at 8:05 am, the North launched another missile presumed to be the same type of IRBM from the same area, the JCS noted.
In April this year, North Korea carried out four unsuccessful launches of missiles of this type. The Musudan missile has a flight range of up to 3,000 km. This weapon type was demonstrated for the first time at a military parade in Pyongyang in 2010.
