North Korea's military on Wednesday defended a recent series of missile and rocket tests that coincided with ongoing annual South Korea-US military drills.

In a statement carried by the North's official KCNA news agency, a Korean People's Army spokesman said the tests -- which violated UN sanctions banning any ballistic missile test by Pyongyang -- were "ordinary military practice".
