Missiles fired

The Daily Herald - - NATION & WORLD -

TOKYO — North Korea fired three medium-range bal­lis­tic missiles into the sea off its east coast Mon­day, land­ing close to Ja­pan, in a show of force that co­in­cided with the meet­ing of lead­ers of the world’s 20 largest economies in neigh­bor­ing China. North Korea launched the missiles, be­lieved to be Rodongs, from a site south of Py­ongyang at 12:14 p.m. lo­cal time, South Korea’s mil­i­tary said. They flew about 600 miles and landed well in­side Ja­pan’s air de­fense iden­ti­fi­ca­tion zone, the area in which Tokyo con­trols air­craft move­ment.
