North Korea fired three ballistic missiles off its eastern coast Tuesday morning, according to the South Korean military. The missiles were fired from North Hwanghae province in the western part of North Korea and flew between 500 and 600 kilometers (between 310 and 370 miles), according to a statement from the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff. The missile test comes six days after South Korea announced it will deploy the advanced U.S THAAD missile defense system at Seongju County, about 250 kilometers (155 miles) southeast of Seoul.
