South Korean military chiefs confirm 'unidentified

South Korean military chiefs confirm 'unidentified”

The US military says North Korea has fired three short-range ballistic missiles.

The U.S. Pacific Command revised its initial assessment that the first and third short-range missiles failed during flight to say they flew about 250 kilometers (155 miles).

The U.S. military said three missiles were fired.

Trump spouted rubbish that if a war breaks out, it would be on the Korean peninsula, and if thousands of people die, they would be only Koreans and Americans may sleep a sound sleep. North Korea purports these military exercises as a rehearsal for an invasion, reports said.

In the latest launch, the U.S. Pacific Command says two of the North's missiles failed in flight after an unspecified distance, and another appeared to have blown up immediately.

North Korea's state media reported on Saturday that Kim had guided a contest of amphibious landing and aerial strike by its army against targets modelled after South Korean islands near the sea border on the west coast.

North Korea also successfully flight-tested a pair of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July that analysts say could reach deep into the U.S. mainland when perfected.

"They have also chose to proceed more thoroughly with the ongoing UFG drills", he said, referring to Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG), an annual combined training drill between South Korea and the US that opened on Monday.

He said that military would "proceed more thoroughly" with the ongoing Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise, a joint training drill between South Korea and the US that started Monday.

Earlier today, the United Nations said North Korea had increased its efforts to produce parts for a new nuclear reactor.

North Korea has ramped up its nuclear and missile development programs in recent months.

These projectiles fired did not threaten the USA or Guam.

Japan's chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, told reporters Saturday morning the launches would not directly affect Japan's security, and that no missiles have reached Japan's territorial waters and exclusive economic zone.

Experts said the projectiles are believed to be Scud-type ballistic missiles with a range of 300km or newly developed longer-range ones.
