Japan: N.Korea launched 2 ballistic missiles

The Japanese government says North Korea launched two ballistic missiles on Thursday morning.

Officials say they were launched around 7 a.m., Japan time.

They believe the projectiles fell outside Japan's exclusive economic zone and say there is no immediate threat to Japan.

They are the first ballistic missiles to be fired by the North in nearly a year.

Japan's National Security Council has already met and is monitoring the situation closely.
