North Korea fired “several” cruise missiles before noon on Friday as part of a test on the country’s west coast, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

It is the fourth cruise missile launch the DPRK has conducted since Jan. 24, following tests of the Pulhwasal-3-31 and Hwasal-2 systems, which state media says are capable of being fitted with nuclear warheads.
