South Korea says North Korea has fired three short-range guided missiles into its eastern waters.

Pyongyang routinely test-launches such missiles.

Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok says the North fired two missiles this morning and another in the afternoon.

He says the North’s intent was unclear.

In March, North Korea tested two short-range missiles off its east coast.

US officials say North Korea recently withdrew two mid-range missiles believed to be capable of reaching Guam after moving them to the east coast earlier this year.

The launches of short-range missiles come amid signs of diplomacy after weeks of warlike threats from North Korea.
