SEOUL, March 18 (Yonhap) -- North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the East Sea on Friday, the military said, in the latest show of force against the ongoing joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States.

The ballistic missile flew about 800 kilometers across North Korea before falling into waters off the country's east coast.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said the missile, which was fired around 5:55 a.m. from the western area of Sukchun, is believed to be a Rodong missile.

On March 10, Pyongyang also shot off two short-range missiles into the East Sea.
