SEOUL, May 9 (Yonhap) -- North Korea fired unidentified projectiles in the eastern direction from a western region north of Pyongyang on Thursday, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.
The North fired the projectiles "from the North Pyongan Province in the eastern direction at 4:30 p.m. today," the JCS said in a release.
The firing came five days after Pyongyang fired a barrage of short-range projectiles into the East Sea.
