S. Korea launched three missiles minutes after N. Korean ICBM launch

ROK response likely intended to communicate intelligence, preparedness

South Korea launched several "precision strike" missiles near its border with North Korea just six minutes after a probable intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) was launched from near Pyongysong early on Wednesday morning.

The South Korean launch, involving a Hyunmoo-2 type ballistic missile, the Haesong-II missile, and the SPICE-2000 missile, involved personnel from the army, navy, and air-force, South Korea's Joint Chief of Staff said on Wednesday.
