North Korea launches missile; test fails

Caramel grease for mid-range "Musudan" missile

North Korea fired a mid-range "Musudan" missile but it "seems to have failed," a South Korean Defense Ministry official says.

The missile was fired around 6:10 a.m. local time on Thursday (5.40 p.m. Wednesday ET).

The military cannot confirm exactly when the missile exploded, but that it "crashed shortly after it was launched," the official said.
The official, who was unnamed, added that further details were unavailable but that the military is in the process of investigating. It is the second ground-based Musudan launch that has failed in the last two weeks.
