North Korea fired two projectiles into the Sea of Japan on Thursday, officials in South Korea and Japan said, in the nuclear-armed country’s 20th launch since May.

Japan’s Defense Ministry said the North launched two “short-range missiles” that traveled 350-400 km and reached an altitude of about 100 km, adding that they were not believed to have fallen into Japan’s exclusive economic zone or territory.
