South Korea on Wednesday told residents on the island of Ulleungdo off its east coast to evacuate to bunkers after North Korea fired three short range ballistic missiles.
A missile headed towards the island before landing in the high sea, according to Yonhap News, which cited defence officials.
An air raid warning broadcast on national television told residents of Ulleungdo to “evacuate to the nearest underground shelter".
North Korea fired an “unidentified ballistic missile" on Wednesday, Seoul’s military said, a test that follows Pyongyang’s warnings over large-scale joint air drills conducted by South Korea and the US.
“North Korea fires an unidentified ballistic missile toward the East Sea," the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement, referring to the body of water also known as the Sea of Japan.
