Off the Wire:

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2009 -- Newswire services this morning reported that North Korea test-fired two short-range missiles Thursday, South Korea's Defense Ministry said.

The Associated Press reported that the missiles were fired from the eastern coastal city of Wonsan on Thursday afternoon, a ministry official said on condition of anonymity citing department policy. He did not say what types of missiles were launched, but the Yonhap news agency said they were ground-to-ship missiles.

North Korea had earlier imposed a no-sail zone in waters off its east coast through July 10 for military drills.

A South Korean newspaper said that the North may also test fire mid-range missiles in a matter of days.
