NKorea Fires Missiles as Obama Meets With Asia Allies

North Korea fired two ballistic missiles capable of reaching both Japan and South Korea as President Barack Obama hosted the first meeting between the leaders of the U.S.’s biggest Asian allies.

The Rodong missiles were fired early this morning and flew 650 kilometers (400 miles), South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min Seok said at a briefing in Seoul. The launches coincided with Obama’s talks with President Park Geun Hye and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the conclusion of a Nuclear Security Summit at The Hague.
