Signs of more North Korean missile tests to come

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korea's coast guard says North
Korea has warned ships to stay away from waters off its western
coast this week.
It's a possible sign that the country may be preparing to
conduct more missile tests after doing two today.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency and YTN television report
today's missiles each had a range of about 80 miles and that one
was ground-to-air and the other ground-to-ship.
The latest launches followed three others reported yesterday, as
well as Pyongyang's (pyuhng-yahngz) widely condemned nuclear test.
The United Nations Security Council calls the underground atomic
test a "clear violation" of a 2006 resolution banning the regime
from developing its nuclear program. It's begun working on a new
resolution that could mean stronger sanctions.
China today repeated its "resolute opposition" to the nuclear
test.
