SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea fired three ballistic missiles off its east coast toward South Korea Monday, South Korea’s military said.

A senior Obama administration official confirmed the launch to CBS News, adding that the test was a show of force apparently timed to coincide with the G-20 economic summit in China. The source said U.S. officials are closely monitoring these latest provocations.
