North Korea Tests 2 More Missiles

A day after detonating a nuclear bomb underground, North Korea reportedly tested two more short-range missiles Tuesday. This move is pushing the regime further into a confrontation with world powers despite the threat of U.N. action.

The two missiles -0ne ground-to-air, the other ground-to-ship- were test fired from an east coast launchpad. Both missiles have a range of 80 miles.

The United Nations security council immediately condemned the tests.

The UN is expected to discuss new sanctions against the north again later today.
