SEOUL - The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Tuesday morning fired off three ballistic missiles, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported, quoting Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

The missiles, presumed to be Scud-types, were launched from North Hwanghae Province from 5:45 am to 6:05 am and flew some 500 to 600 kilometers, the military said.

The range of the missiles is enough to reach all of South Korea, the JCS said.
