SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA — North Korea launched an unidentified missile into the Sea of Japan, Monday.

Fox News tweeted the news, attributing it to South Korean media:

North Korea fired three short-range missiles Saturday which were successful, despite initial reports suggesting they failed, according to the U.S. military.

U.S. and South Korean forces began annual military exercises last week, which Pyongyang claimed was a rehearsal for war.

Earlier this month, President Trump said there would be “fire and fury” if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued making threats.
