BREAKING: North Korea Launches 'Unidentified Projectile'

According to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, North Korea fired two "unidentifiable projectiles" on Thursday off North Korea's eastern coast, Reuters reported.

A United States defense official said one was a short range projectile, similar to ones that were launched in May. Although they traveled similar distances, they were not intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that are what United States officials are most concerned about.

According to CNN, the short range projectile traveled 260 miles. It then landed in the Sea of Japan, ABC News reported.

"Our military, in preparation for additional launches, is maintaining (its) readiness posture by monitoring related movements," an official in the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff office said.

President Donald Trump has been in negotiation talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Last month, North Korea said they would resume nuclear and missile tests in preparation for a potential invasion from South Korea and the United States, POLITICO reported.

This is a breaking news story and has been updated with additional information.
