      North Korea fired short-range projectiles into the East Sea last Wednesday, a day before President Park Geun-hye embarked on her state visit to China. The projectiles are believed to fit a new type of 300-mm multiple rocket launchers.

      A government source said Monday that four of the short-range projectiles were fired into the East Sea from a point near Wonsan.

      Between May 18 and 20 North Korea fired another six short-range projectiles into the East Sea, and South Korean military authorities also estimated that they were new 300-mm multiple rocket launchers.

      "We believe North Korea is continuing to test-fire its new multiple rocket launchers," a military spokesman here said.
