North Korea Reportedly Fires Its Fifth Failed Missile Since April

North Korea conducted what appeared to be its fifth intermediate range ballistic missile launch since April, according to NKNews.

The launch was “assumed to be unsuccessful,” according to the South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The launch of a Musudan ballistic missile would be the fifth such launch to fail since April. “The first test was on April 15, the second and third on April 28, and fourth on May 31,” NKNews wrote.

The U.S. military detected a missile launch from North Korea, a spokesman told Reuters, without providing additional details.
