North Korea fires three short-range missiles from its east coast; all fail

North Korea launched three missiles into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan on Saturday morning.
The missiles appeared to be short-range, not the intercontinental ones capable of reaching the mainland United States that North Korea fired last month.
The US military's Pacific Command said it had detected three short-range ballistic missiles, all of which failed with one of them blowing up almost immediately after launch.
The launches appeared to be a response to the ongoing joint exercises between the United States and South Korean militaries, exercises that North Korea strongly protested because it considers them preparation for an invasion.
