WASHINGTON, May 26, 2009 -- Newswire services this evening reported that North Korea launched an additional short-range missile from its east coast Tuesday night, an official at the South Korean presidential office said.

"The North appears to have launched a ground-to-ship missile into the East Sea shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday," the official said, asking not to be identified. Pyongyang had launched two short-range missiles from its east coast earlier Tuesday, following its supposed nuclear test the day before, noted the Yonhap News Agency.

This is a developing story.
