North Korea fired off two ballistic missiles — its second major test in less than a week of weapons designed to bolster its capability to conduct nuclear strikes against Japan and South Korea.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said two ballistic missiles were fired from central North Korea into waters off the eastern coast of the peninsula Wednesday afternoon. The launch came on the same day South Korean President Moon Jae-in observed his own military’s test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile, joining a small list of countries to demonstrate the technology.
