North Korea says it tested long-range cruise missiles, ‘tactical’ projectiles

Pyongyang continues breakneck pace with sixth missile test in 22 days

North Korea fired two long-range cruise missiles on Jan. 25 and two tactical guided missiles on Jan. 27, the Rodong Sinmun reported on Friday.

The “war deterrent” cruise missiles flew a distance of 1,118 miles (1,800 km) for about 153 minutes before hitting a target island on North Korea's coast, according to the report, while the short-range tactical guided missiles “precisely” hit an island target an unspecified distance away. South Korea's military said the Jan. 27 launch took place near Hamhung.
