South Korea successfully test-fired a new ballistic missile capable of carrying a one-tonne payload to any part of North Korea it said on Friday.

The missile was launched on March 23, only two days before the North test fired two medium-range ballistic missiles capable of striking Japan.

The new South Korean missile, capable of carrying a one-tonne payload up to 500 kilometres, was developed under an agreement reached in 2012 with the United States to almost triple the range of the South's ballistic missile systems.

On Monday, North Korea conducted a live-fire drill along the disputed maritime border. After some shells crossed the boundary, South Korea responded and the two sides fired hundreds of artillery rounds into each other's waters, according to reports.
