But Pyongyang described the launches as a “regular military exercise.”

The South Korean Defense Ministry still needs to analyze exactly what the North has been firing for the past three days, said Choi Yong-su, an official in the ministry representative’s office.

They could be short-range missiles or a new kind of large-caliber artillery rocket, the ministry said.

The North fired three projectiles into waters off its east coast Saturday and a fourth Sunday. It fired two more Monday, Choi said.
