N. Korea launches two missiles in military drill

North Korea fired two short-range missiles into its coastal waters, a move believed part of regular military drills, South Korean military officials said Friday, amid an international stalemate over the North's nuclear weapons. An official at South Korea's Defense Ministry said the missiles, fired Thursday into the waters off the North's western coast, were believed to have a range of about 100 kilometers (60 miles). Another official at the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the launches were likely "part of regular military drills."
