South Korea's military said that North Korea has fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile off its east coast this morning.

This is the latest in a string of missile launches by the isolated country in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.

The missile was fired from near the coastal city of Sinpo, and travelled about 500 kilometres.

The launch comes, 2 days after rival South Korea and the US began annual military exercises in the South that North Korea condemns as a preparation for invasion, and has threatened retaliation.
