North Korea launched a missile early
on Sunday in defiance of American
threats, but it reportedly blew up on
take off, its arch rivals say.

Fears have been growing that the
reclusive North could soon conduct its
sixth nuclear test or more missile
launches in defiance of UN sanctions
and stark warnings from the United
States that a policy of patience was
over.

The attempted blast off near Sinpo, on
North Korea’s east coast, is believed to
have failed shortly after launch, the
South Korean and American militaries
said.

North Korea showcases new
missiles at military parade
The launch comes a day after the
North held a military parade in its
capital Pyongyang marking the birth
anniversary of the state founder,
where what appeared to be new
ballistic missiles were displayed.
“The North attempted to launch an
unidentified missile from near the
Sinpo region this morning but it is
suspected to have failed,” the South’s
Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said
in a statement.

There were no further details, and the
office said it was analysing the launch.
The US Pacific Command detected and
tracked what it assessed to be a North
Korean ballistic missile launch early
Sunday, said Navy Commander Dave
Benham, a military spokesman.
“The missile blew up almost
immediately,” Benham said. “The type
of missile is still being assessed.”

There was no immediate response
from Pyongyang.
The North launched an
intercontinental ballistic missile
(ICBM) from the same region earlier
this month ahead of a summit meeting
between the leaders of the United
States and China, its key ally, to
discuss the North’s increasingly defiant
arms programme.

The White House has said US President
Donald Trump has put the North “on
notice”, while the possibility of
American military action against
Pyongyang has gained traction
following US cruise missile strikes
against Syria on April 7.
Trump has ordered a navy strike
group flagshipped by a nuclear-
powered aircraft carrier to head to the
region as a show of force as his
officials assess tougher economic
sanctions, as well as military options
against the North.

threat
The North has in turn warned of a
nuclear strike against the United States
if provoked.

Pyongyang says it has developed and
would launch a missile that can strike
the mainland United States, but
officials and experts believe it is some
time away from mastering all the
necessary technology.

US defence chief Jim Mattis said in a
statement on Sunday: “The president
and his military team are aware of
North Korea’s most recent
unsuccessful missile launch. The
president has no further comment.”
