North Korea launches 3 short range missiles

North Korea launched three short-range guided missiles into the sea off the Korean Peninsula's east coast Saturday, South Korea's semi-official news agency Yonhap cited the South Korean Defense Ministry as saying. The ministry said it had detected two launches in the morning, followed by another in the afternoon, Yonhap reported.

It said the country has beefed up monitoring on North Korea and is maintaining a high-level of readiness to deal with any risky developments.
According to the Arms Control Association, a U.S.-based organization, short-range guided missiles are generally classified as those traveling less than 1,000 kilometers (about 620 miles.)
