The hunt is on for their larger, stronger prey. A little nip at the back foot, maybe a bite in the ass, or even at the ear if they can get close enough. The wolves are definitely closing in. SEOUL, South Korea â North Korea test-fired four short-range missiles Thursday, South Korea's Defense Ministry said, a move that aggravates already high tensions following Pyongyang's recent nuclear test and U.N. sanctions imposed as punishment. Two ground-to-ship missiles were fired from the eastern coastal city of Wonsan on Thursday afternoon, a ministry official said on condition of anonymity citing department policy. The North also fired a third missile later from the east coast, but the exact site and the type of a rocket was not immediately known, the official said. Another ministry official â also speaking on condition of anonymity citing department policy â said the North later fired a fourth missile, though she provided no details.
