U.S & South Korea Launch 8 Missiles in Response to North Korea

According to CNN "North Korea fired eight short-range ballistic missiles from multiple sites in the country into waters east of the Korean peninsula on Sunday." In response to this the U.S and South Korea launched 8 of their own missiles into the same region.

Each country is merely using the missiles as a show of force and are only landing in the ocean. They are not directly targeting anything in particular. The concern however is that North Korea is planning on conducting another underground nuclear test. "If North Korea conducts a test, it would be the country's seventh underground nuclear test and the first in nearly five years" (CNN).
