U.S., S. Korea start joint naval drills after North Korean missile launch

Summary by Ground News
South Korea and the United States began their first combined naval exercise near the peninsula in five years on Monday (Sep 26), a day after Pyongyang conducted a ballistic missile launch. The four-day exercise on South Korea's east coast will involve more than 20 vessels and an assortment of aircraft. The allies have long carried out joint exercises, which they insist are purely defensive. North Korea, however, sees them as rehearsals for an invasion. The North Korean missile fired on Sunday flew about 600 kilometers (370 miles) before falling into the waters off the North's east coast.
