North Korea has launched four ballistic missiles towards the Sea of Japan, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe has said.

Three of them fell into Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) after flying some 1,000km (620 miles).

They were fired from the Tongchang-ri region, near the North's border with China, the South Korean military said.

It is unclear what type of missiles were fired, but the North is banned by the UN from any tests of missile or nuclear technology.

A South Korean military official said the launch took place at 07:36 local time Monday (22:36 GMT Sunday) and was being investigated to determine the type of projectile used.

On Friday, Pyongyang threatened to fire missiles in response to the Foal Eagle military exercises under way between South Korea and the US. The North sees the annual drills as preparation for an invasion against it.
