SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – South Korea says that North Korea has fired two short-range ballistic missiles toward the sea in its first ballistic weapons tests in two weeks.

Friday’s launches came after the U.S. military warned the North that the use of nuclear weapons “will result in the end of that regime.”

South Korea’s military says it detected the two launches from the North’s eastern coastal Tongchon area around Friday noon.

The back-to-back launches, the North’s first ballistic missile tests since Oct. 14, came on the final day of South Korea’s annual 12-day field exercises, which North Korea views as an invasion rehearsal.
