It was the latest launches from the Hodo peninsula on North Korea's east coast, the same area from where last week's were conducted, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. It said it was monitoring in case of additional launches. Abe told reporters that Japan will continue to work with the United States and its allies over the situation in the region.
