Massive Missile Failure In North Korea


A missile fired from North Korea’s east coast Sunday “blew up almost immediately,” the U.S. Pacific Command said.

The launch came near the city of Sinpo and one day after one of the biggest North Korean propaganda events of the year – celebrations of the 105th birthday of late North Korea found Kim Il Sunday.

“U.S. Pacific Command is fully committed to working closely with our allies in the Republic of Korea and in Japan to maintain security,” U.S. Pacific Command Cdr. Dave Benham said in a statement.

A U.S. official told Fox News that President Trump was notified of the failed launch.

Vice President Pence was also briefed on the launch and has been in contact with Trump. Pence is en route to Seoul, South Korea to kick off his Asian tour.

The missile failure comes a day after North Korea paraded its intercontinental ballistic missiles in a massive military display in central Pyongyang.
