North Korea fails in new missile test

North Korea fails in new missile test April 16, 2017

North Korea has failed at another nuclear test according to Agence France-Presse. A fresh North Korean missile test failed when it exploded after launch Sunday, the US military said, a day after Pyongyang publicly showcased its ballistic arsenal at a giant military parade.

“The missile blew up almost immediately,” the US Defence Department said of the early morning launch which was also monitored by the Republic of Korean military.

Neither was able to determine immediately what kind of missile was being tested.

It came a day after North Korea displayed nearly 60 missiles — including what is suspected to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile — at a parade to mark the 105th birthday of its founder Kim Il-Sung.
