North Korea "Missile Test" was Failed to Launch, After in a few seconds!

North Korea attempted to launch a missile near Sinpo in North Korea last Saturday. 

During the test launch the missile immediately fizzled leading to an unsuccessful launch. 

U.S. Pacific Command spokesman Commander David Benham said that "U.S. Pacific Command detected and tracked what we assess was a North Korean missile launch at 11:21 a.m. Hawaii time April 15. The launch of the ballistic missile occurred near Sinpo." 

Despite the threatening act of North Korea, a US Defense Department official said that the weapon that was launched wasn’t an ICBM or Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile. Most likely, it was only a medium-range ballistic missile according to a White House foreign policy adviser. 

The failed launch came a day after North Korea held a grand military parade to mark the birth anniversary of the state founder. 

Aside from the said missile, North Koreans also held a parade of what appears to be mock-up missiles during the celebratory event.  

A CNN news reporter, who was reporting from PyongYang in North Korea, said that there is no need to be alarmed since the country wouldn’t release any details on the launch due to its failure. Usually, he said, North Korea would immediately release details on a successful launch but not on a failed one.

Still, people all over the world need to be vigilant with North Korea due to the fact that their leader, Kim Jong Un, is notorious for launching missiles, especially for Filipinos since the Philippines may be within the limits of such a missile’s range.
