N.Korea fires short-range missiles off coast

North Korea fired five short-range missiles off its east coast on Sunday, in a demonstration of military muscle by the secretive state amid escalating rhetoric against the United States and South Korea. The missiles hit the sea after about 200 km (120 miles), a South Korean defence ministry official said. Sunday’s show of firepower marked the 67th anniversary of the formation of North Korea’s armed forces by state founder Kim Il Sung, when the Korean peninsula was divided into the North and South.
