WASHINGTON North Korea launched two ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan on Thursday, a U.S. official and Japan's prime minister said.

South Korea also confirmed the launch.

A U.S. official told NBC News on Wednesday evening Washington time that they were most likely short-range ballistic missiles. Japan's prime minister, Yoshihide Suga, told reporters that the projectiles were ballistic missiles and that the action marked the first such provocation in a year.
