South Korea’s military says North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile into the sea off its eastern coast.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the launch was made on Sunday morning but provided no further details.

Japan's prime minister's office also says North Korea has fired a possible missile.
