N Korea attempts to launch intermediate range missile but fails: Yonhap

SEOUL – North Korea attempted to launch an intermediate range ballistic missile off the country’s east coast on Friday but the launch failed, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported.

The failed launch follows North Korea’s fourth nuclear test in January and a long-range rocket launch the next month, which led to fresh U.N. sanctions.

Yonhap said the failed launch appeared to be a Musudan missile with a range of more than 3,000 kms (1,800 miles).
