SEOUL - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un again on Friday inspected the test firing of a "newly-developed large-caliber multiple launch guided rocket system," North Korean state media reported early on Saturday.

The test firing came days after the North's first test firing of the new rocket system on Wednesday.

The South Korean military said on Friday that North Korea fired at least two short-range projectiles into the East Sea before dawn.
