Norks Couldn't Help Themselves

They've been out of the headlines too long, I guess. They figured the way back into the public eye was to test-fire some missiles. CNN Reports:

North Korea test-fired a short-range missile off its western coast in the middle of last week, according to Yonhap News Agency.

Quoting an intelligence source, Yonhap says Pyongyang launched a KN-06 short-range missile in an attempt to improve it and increase its range.

This launch would be the North's first test of a short-range missile in 19 months. In July 2009, North Korea fired a series of short-range missiles off its east coast, a move criticized by the international community.

The South Korean Ministry of Defense tells CNN they cannot comment on the report.
