(CBS NEWS) – North Korea has fired several unidentified short-range projectiles from its eastern coast, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said Saturday.

The initial U.S.assessment is that the projectiles were short-range missiles, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reported.

South Korea’s military bolstered its surveillance in case there are additional launches.

The country initially reported Saturday that a single missile was fired, but later issued a statement saying “several projectiles” had been launched and that they flew up to 125 miles before splashing into the sea toward the northeast.

There is no doubt the launch was a message, although it’s not clear who it was addressed to, according to CBS News’ Elizabeth Palmer.
