People in Seoul watch the news about North Korea’s ballistic missile launch.

North Korea and South Korea fired missiles that hit the waters off their coasts.

Seoul retaliated for the first time on Wednesday three hours after Pyongyang launched a missile that landed less than 60 kilometers from the South Korean city of Sokcho.

The Southern Army said it was “unacceptable” violation of its territory.

In response, it fired three air-to-surface missiles, which authorities say landed a similar distance (60 km) beyond the Northern Limit Line (NLL).
