NKorea fires two short-range missiles into east waters
(07-02 11:18)

North Korea fired two short-range projectiles into its east waters Wednesday, a day after South Korea refused a proposal of the North to stop all military hostilities.
The projectiles, presumed to be shells fired from 300-mm multiple-rocket launcher termed by South Korea as KN-09, were launched at 6:50 a.m. and 8 a.m. each, according to military sources cited by local media.
The projectiles, which flew some 180 km, were fired from Wonsan areas, North Korea's southeastern region, into the east waters.
The North launched two Scud missiles, which flew 500 kil0meters, into its east waters on June 29 after firing three KN-09 shells on June 26, the South Korean military said.
South Korea refused Tuesday a proposal of the North to stop all military hostilities from Friday, saying it lacked sincerity. --Xinhua
