North Korea launched short-range projectiles on Monday into waters off its east coast for a third straight day, officials here said, despite warnings from the United States and South Korea against increasing tensions.

He said a projectile was launched from the North’s east coast in a northeasterly direction Monday morning, followed by another in the afternoon.
