US military detects failed N. Korean missile launch

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (C) arrives to inspect a test-fire of strategic submarine-launched ballistic missile at an undisclosed location, on August 25, 2016The US military said it had detected an unsuccessful launch by North Korea of a powerful medium-range missile capable of hitting US bases as far away as Guam. UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from using ballistic missile technology, and this latest test came as the UN Security Council is debating fresh sanctions on Pyongyang following its fifth nuclear test in September. The US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) said the launch, detected just after midday Saturday Korea time, was believed to be of a much-hyped Musudan missile which North Korea has now test-fired seven times — with one partial success.
