North Korea has launched three ballistic missiles off its east coast as world leader meet at the G20 summit.

The missiles were fired from the western region south of the capital Pyongyang early Monday.

It is believed North Korea launched the missiles as a show off force as world leaders meeting at the G20 summit in Hangzhou, eastern China.

Leaders from China, North Korea’s only major ally, and South Korean also spoke during a sideline meeting at the summit.

South Korean President Park Geun-hye reportedly accused the North for hurting ties between Seoul and Beijing.

The medium-range Rodong-class missiles have landed in the sea under Japan’s air defence identification zone.

A spokesman from the Japanese Defence Ministry in a statement said: “We are still analysing details but this is a grave threat to our nation’s security, and we express deep concern.”

Just moment after South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo agreed to co-operate the threat from North Korea.

Last month, North Korea fired a missile that landed in Japan’s “air defence identification zone”.

US Intelligience reportedly discovered nuclear bomb proof bunkers being built in North Korea.

Just days ago inside sources revealed Kim Jong-un had been giving out nuke backpacks – sparking fears that he is gearing up for battle.
