North Korea has alarmed South Korean defense officials before with tests of its 300-millimetre rockets and displays of an eight-tube version of the system during military parades.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency has also reported the possible test, citing the country's military.

South Korea said the projectiles appeared to be artillery rockets from a multiple-rocket launcher. The U.S. Pacific Command says its assessments indicate that the three missiles failed.
