North Korea fails in mid-range Ballistic Missile

Time: 12:48 a.m. CEST

South Korea and the United States said on Saturday that North Korea apparently had failed launch of a mid-range ballistic missile, the Associated Press reports. The AP reports that South Korea’s Join Chiefs of Staff said that North fired the unidentified missile from around Pukchang. On Twitter, Darlene Superville, who is an AP writer, twitted “US official says North Korean test was likely of a medium-range ballistic missile and that it broke up minutes after launch.” The news agency said, “The missile was likely a medium-range KN-17 ballistic missile.” The AP writes, “The range of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s suggestions, which over a span of 24 hours also included restarting negotiations, reflected America’s failure to halt North Korea’s nuclear advances despite decades of U.S.-led sanctions, military threats and stop-and-go rounds of diplomatic engagement. As the North approaches the capability to hit the U.S. mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile, the Trump administration feels it is running out of time.”
