North Korea conducts new missiles test

JUNG YEON-JE / AFP

North Korea has conducted its third weapons test in eight days.

Officials from South Korea say Pyongyang fired two projectiles missiles on Friday. 

They say the weapons are a new type of short-range missile.

Last week North Korea fired four short-range ballistic missiles on two separate days. 

It comes despite desperate efforts from the international community to reach a diplomatic solution to the situation.

They said it was intended to pressure South Korea and the USA to stop conducting military drills together.
