North Korea Launches Trio of Missiles Amidst US-South Korea Military Drills
North Korea launched a barrage of missiles Saturday, less than one week after being praised by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for showing 'restraint' in its weapons program. Pyongyang fired three short-range ballistic missiles from the Kangwon province, according to US Pacific Command. The launches occurred in the midst of the US and South Korea's annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises.
