An attempted missile launch by North Korea failed when it exploded immediately after liftoff, a U.S. official says.

The type of missile is still being assessed, and only one missile was fired, according to U.S. officials. It was unclear whether it was fired from land or from sea.

    Probably a false flag to test what S Korea thinks, at the moment S Korea are stopping Trump from attacking the north because they know they can't defend against N Korea, Seoul will be wiped out and bankrupt the country.... If they did launch, China will confirm one way or the other. But highlights that Kim is not scared of the yanks.
