North Korean test missile explodes on launch
A North Korean missile exploded during launch Sunday from the country's east coast, U.
Sunday's launch comes a day after the 105th birthday of late North Korea founder Kim Il Sung.
President Donald Trump was uncharacteristically quiet about the failed launch of a North Korean missile from the country's east coast.
The office had no other details and said it was analyzing the launch attempt.
Also Friday, North Korea's vice foreign minister told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview that Trump's tweets - he recently tweeted, for example, that the North is "looking for trouble" - have inflamed tensions.
LESS than a day after threatening the U.S. with "nuclear justice" North Korea has embarrassingly tried to launch a ballistic missile but failed.
Signs had suggested that North Korea was preparing for its sixth nuclear test in a decade or for a significant missile launch. US satellite imagery suggests the country could conduct another underground nuclear test at any time.
The White House believes that Sunday's test involved a medium-range ballistic missile that failed within 4-5 seconds after launch, and that it did not involve an intercontinental ballistic missile, the foreign policy adviser said.
State television showed what appeared to be several KN-08 and KN-14 missiles rolled out on trucks at the parade.

While the reclusive communist state did not carry out a ballistic missile or nuclear test yesterday as widely speculated to mark the 105th birth anniversary of its founder Kim Il Sung, uncertainties still remain due to the unpredictable nature of both the North Korean and U.S. leaders, they said.
The situation in North Korea is at its most precarious in many years, and any slight miscalculation by Pyongyang could spark military conflict, Chinese analysts have said. "The president has no further comment".
Recently North Korea condemned the US strike on a Syrian airfield as "an unforgivable act of aggression" and justified its nuclear weapons developments as "the right choice a million times over" because of it.
The vice president said at a fellowship dinner at U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan in Seoul that the willingness of military members "to stand firm without fear inspires the nation and inspires the world".
The country under his watch has been aggressively pursuing a goal of putting a nuclear warhead on an ICBM capable of reaching the continental United States. North Korea is thought to have a small arsenal of atomic bombs and an impressive array of short- and medium-range missiles.
"Our toughest counteraction against the USA and its vassal forces will be taken in such a merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive", a spokesperson for North Korea's military said ahead of the parade, according to the state-run KCNA news agency.
He has repeatedly said that if China, North Korea's dominant trading partner, isn't willing to do more to squeeze the North, then the US might take the matter into its own hands. A USA aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, is heading to waters off Korea in a show of force.
"We will respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and a nuclear war with our style of a nuclear attack", said Choe, widely seen by analysts as North Korea's No. 2 official.
