SEOUL - North Korea fired its fifth short-range missile in three days on Monday and condemned South Korea for criticizing what it said were its legitimate military drills.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said a missile had been fired on Monday morning, according to the South's Yonhap news agency, although it was unclear what type of missile was used.

The launches come hard on the heels of more than two months of threats from North Korea that it would wage a nuclear war against South Korea and the United States if it were attacked.
