There’s a “high chance” of more missile launches from North Korea following the fifth ballistic test in about two weeks, South Korea said.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff will conduct further analysis with the U.S. on what it said were likely short-range ballistic missiles fired at 5:34 a.m. and 5:50 a.m. local time on Saturday, it said in a statement. The projectiles flew 400 kilometers (249 miles) into the sea between the Korean peninsula and Japan.
