NKorea fires 2 missiles: report

SEOUL: Yonhap news agency says that North Korea has fired two short-range missiles off its east coast.

Yonhap quoted an unidentified South Korean government official as saying that the North test-fired the missiles on Monday afternoon.

Yonhap said the North has issued a no-sail zone in an area off the east coast Oct. 10-20.

The report came hours after South Korea proposed two sets of working-level talks with North Korea. But Seoul also said it had no plan to resume high-level dialogue with its communist neighbor — amid lingering tensions over the North's nuclear weapons programs.
