(Update) N. Korea Fires Missiles for 1st Time since Oct. 31

   Tokyo/Seoul, Nov. 28 (Jiji Press)--North Korea fired apparent missiles into the Sea of Japan on Thursday afternoon, in its first such action since Oct. 31 and 13th this year, Japanese and South Korean officials said.
   Two projectiles were launched from South Hamgyong Province in eastern North Korea around 4:59 p.m. (7:59 a.m. GMT), according to the South Korean military.
   The latest firing came after the South Korean government Friday suspended its August decision to scrap its military information-sharing pact with Japan.
   The projectiles, which were apparently ballistic missiles, are believed to have fallen into waters outside Japan's exclusive economic zone, according to the Japanese government.
   Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono told reporters they reached an altitude of about 100 kilometers and traveled 380 kilometers. No damage to Japanese aircraft or ships was confirmed, he also said.
