Red-faced Kim Jong-un accidentally blasts OWN city in missile blunder

The missile was said to be a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) launched from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province, that later, crashed into Tokchon.

The Diplomat report also claimed that North Korea's missile program was more advanced than the U.S. and its Allies had anticipated despite the April 28 launch failure and its inherent dangers. A building in Chongsin-dong, Tokchon, which appeared to be a greenhouse, was severely damaged with a crater-like impact zone on the ground, believed to have been caused by the highly volatile liquid propellant of the missile, the magazine said, citing an anonymous United States official.

The missile's engines reportedly failed after just one minute into the flight, resulting in "catastrophic failure", The Diplomat reported, citing a "U.S. government source with knowledge of North Korea's weapons programs".

However The Diplomat said it was impossible to ascertain whether there was any loss of life.

However, it's said to have failed shortly after it was launched and crashed down in the city of Tokchom, causing damage to what appears to be agricultural or industrial buildings.

There have been no reported deaths as a result of the apparent stray rocket, but the damaged building is close to heavily populated areas.

North Korea has not been lucky with missiles of late with a string of failures that engulfed the nation.

The missile was once again launched in May and at this time it successfully completed the test.

The failed missile launch was widely reported when it happened.

The particular experiment was the third attempt by North Korea to flawless its Hwasong-12 missile.

The publication published photos posted by the Kim Jong Un regime during a missile launch celebration concert in July 2017.

North Korea launched an ICBM over Japan into the Pacific Ocean on September 14, and then again on November 29 of past year.
