SEOUL, March 6 North Korea fired an unidentified
projectile from its Tongchang-ri region, where a missile base is
located, early on Monday, South Korea's military said.
The projectile landed in the sea off North Korea's east
coast, the military added.
Tongchang-ri is near the North's border with China, where
the isolated state fired a long-range rocket last year that put
an object into orbit and was condemned by the United Nations for
violating resolutions that ban the use of missile technology.
