North Korean despot Kim Jong Un has fired two more ballistic missiles towards Japan as tensions with the US continue to mount. 

Thursday's missile launch, announced by South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, was the sixth in 12 days and the first since the reclusive regime fired an intermediate-range missile over its easterly neighbour on Tuesday. 

That launch, the first of its kind in five years, sparked joint missile drills by South Korea and the United States and a return of aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan to the sea between Korea and Japan. 

The latest missile launches suggest Kim Jong Un is determined to continue with weapons tests aimed at boosting his nuclear arsenal in defiance of international sanctions.
