North Korea launched five short-range missiles into the sea off the east of the peninsula on Monday, a news report said, amid protests from Pyongyang over ongoing US-South Korean military drills.
The missiles were fired between 3:19 and 4:05 pm (0679 to 0705 GMT), Yonhap News Agency reported, citing the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Seoul.
The isolated communist regime has launched missiles three times since the March 10 start of the annual military exercises, which it has called a rehearsal for invasion.
It fired two missiles into the sea on March 14, followed by two ballistic missiles Friday, of which one reached the sea, and the other apparently exploded in flight, Yonhap reported.
