The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) launched a short-range missile from its east coast, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency on Friday reported, citing an official at the South Korean government.

DPRK seems to have launched a missile into the East Sea at around 6:12 p.m., at Musudanri, Hwadae county, North Hamgyong province, according to the official.

"The missile, with an estimated range of 160 km, was seemed to be a different from what it had launched before," said the official.

"It might be a new type of a land-to-air missile," the official added.

The DPRK has been firing a series of missiles since Monday, when it said it successfully conducted a second nuclear test.
