North Korea test launches missile ahead of Harris trip to Seoul

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea says North Korea fired a ballistic missile toward its eastern waters a day before U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile was launched on Wednesday but gave no further details.

This is the second missile launched by North Korea this week.

Harris is due to visit the Demilitarized Zone separating the rival Koreas during his visit to South Korea.

The launch also comes as U.S. and South Korean navy ships conduct exercises off the east coast of the Korean peninsula.
