North Korea Test Fires Two Ballistic Missiles

On March 24, North Korea test-launched two new short-range ballistic missiles. The state-run KCNA stated the missiles, which appear to be a variant of the KN-23, flew 600 km before striking a target in the Sea of Japan. Japanese and South Korean reports, however, say the missiles ranged about 430 km. Earlier on March 21, North Korea test-fired two cruise missiles.
