Days after Pyongyang fired a mid-range missile, South Korea defense ministry said on Friday that it has test-fired a new ballistic missile with a range of 500 km (310 miles) and will try to extend the range to 800 km so it can strike any site in North Korea. According to Reuters, ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said the new missiles are intended to counter the threat from North Korea's missile and nuclear programs.
