North Korea fires 3 short-range missiles; US says tests fail
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Three North Korea short-range ballistic missiles failed on Saturday, a temporary blow to Pyongyang's rapid nuclear and missile expansion, U.S. military officials said. The U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement that two of the North's missiles failed in flight after an unspecified distance, and another appeared to have blown up immediately. It added that the missile posed no threat to the U.S. territory of Guam, which the North had previously warned it would fire missiles toward.
