Pyongyang Launches Anti-Ship Missile, South Says

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – North Korea fired an anti-ship cruise missile from waters off the east coast earlier this month as part of its regular summertime exercise, South Korean military officials said Thursday. The test was belatedly known to the media, as neither the South Korean military authorities nor North Korean media outlets announced the launch. According to the Seoul officials, the ship-to-ship missile was fired from a ship in the East Sea on July 6 and flew less than 100 kilometers.
