SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean and Japanese media say North Korea has launched two ballistic missiles into the sea off its east coast in its latest test-firing.

Impoverished North Korea has staged a series of recent missile and rocket test-firings seen by analysts as expressions of anger over its failure to win talks meant to provide outside aid, and over South Korean and U.S. military drills.

South Korean military officials couldn't immediately confirm the reports of Sunday's launches.

North Korea regularly conducts test-firings, but this year has seen an unusually large number of launches. South Korean officials have confirmed about 90 test-firings of missiles, artillery and rockets by the North since Feb. 21. More than 10 of them have been ballistic launches.
