North Korea appeared to fire four shots from its multiple rocket launchers into the Yellow Sea early on Sunday, military officials in Seoul have said.
“There were shots believed to be that of North Korea’s multiple rocket launchers this morning,” a South Korean military official told Yonhap news agency.
“We are maintaining our defense readiness posture, while closely following related developments,” he added.
Four shots were fired in the span of an hour from an unspecified location in North Korea’s Pyongan province, with the projectiles landing in the Yellow Sea, according to reports.
South Korea’s National Security Council held an emergency vice-ministerial meeting following the incident.
