JCS: N. Korea Test-Fires Submarine Missile

North Korea has fired what appears to be a submarine-launched ballistic missile(SLBM) in the East Sea.

The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said that North Korea launched a projectile presumed to be an SLBM around 6:30 p.m. Saturday in waters off its northeastern coast.

Officials said the missile was successfully ejected out of a two-thousand ton Sinpo-class submarine before it was properly ignited outside of water. They added that the missile flew only around 30 kilometers in about a few minutes.

The JCS said it is closely watching the movements of the North Korean military while maintaining its readiness posture.
