North Korea conducts third weapons test in eight days

North Korea has fired two projectiles which South Korean officials say appear to have been a new type of short-range missile.

The launch, the third in just over a week, came from North Korea's east coast early on Friday.

The string of tests are being seen as reaction to planned military exercises between South Korea and the US.

On Thursday, the UK, France and Germany called on North Korea to engage in "meaningful" talks with the US.

After a closed-door meeting at the UN Security Council, the countries said international sanctions needed to be fully enforced until Pyongyang had dismantled its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
