SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea fired an unidentified projectile on Wednesday from the Sinpo region on its east coast into the sea off the Korean Peninsula, South Korea's military said.

The launch comes just ahead of a summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping this week where adding more pressure on the North to drop its arms development is likely to be discussed.
