SEOUL - The Democratic People's Republic of Korea fired a rocket shell towards the eastern waters early on Sunday, the official Korean Central News Agency reported.

A long-range artillery sub-unit in the western area of the Korean People's Army conducted the firing, using a super-large multiple rocket launcher, the KCNA report said.

The firing came a day after the DPRK conducted a test-fire of the weapon systems on Saturday, according to the report.
