PYONGYANG, North Korea, July 9 (UPI) -- North Korea launched two short-range missiles from the western Hwanghae Province early Wednesday.

According to a South Korean defense ministry official, the two missiles flew more than 310 miles with no reported damage or injuries.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has ordered an investigation into Wednesday's launch with the intention of lodging an official complaint with the North Korean government.

Wednesday's launch comes days after North Korea reasserted its sovereign right to conduct missile launches.
