N Korea may have fired two small missiles-Pentagon

Written by: Staff

WASHINGTON, July 4 (Reuters) North Korea appears to have launched at least two small Scud-type missiles, not the intercontinental ballistic missile that has been a focus of international concern , a Pentagon official said today.

''This appears not to be the launch of the missile that's been so widely reported of late,'' said the official, who asked not to named. He referred to the small missiles as ''lesser variety'' Scud types.

The official spoke before reports that a third, long-range missile had been fired.
