North Korea has launched three short-range ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan Saturday in a further taunting of US president Donald Trump – but they were all duds.

The US military said that two of the missiles failed in flight and the other blew up ‘almost immediately’. They were launched between 6.19am and 6.49am local time in North Korea and landed to the east of North Korea’s Kangwon province.

South Korea’s Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said it was analysing the missiles.

It said: ‘The military is keeping a tight surveillance over the North to cope with further provocations’.
It comes as a US-South Korea joint military exercise is under way and as category 4 Hurricane Harvey moves towards Texas.

South Koreans – living under constant threat of attack from their belligerent northern neighbours – had to wake up to the launch at 6.49am local time.

Two of the missiles landed off the east coast of South Korea’s Kangwon province after flying 155 miles in a northeasterly direction.

A spokesman for US Pacific Command said none of the missiles, which it said were launched near Kittaeryong, had posed a threat to either North America or the US Pacific territory of Guam.

‘The first and third missiles… failed in flight. The second missile launch… appears to have blown up almost immediately,’ said the spokesman, Commander Dave Benham, adding that the launches happened over a span of 30 minutes.

The news was immediately reported to President Moon Jae-in.
