WASHINGTON, The Pentagon said Thursday that North Korea's launches earlier the same day were of ballistic missiles that flew more than 300 kilometers.

"During the early morning hours on 9 May Washington DC local time, early evening hours in Seoul and Tokyo, North Korea flight-tested multiple ballistic missiles from a location in northwestern North Korea," Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Dave Eastburn said in a statement.

"The missiles flew east from the launch area to distances in excess of 300 km before impacting in the ocean."
