This launch, which came days after South Koreans went to the polls to elect a new president, is the latest in all of the tests. North Korea has carried out four unsuccessful missile tests over the past two months. The most recent missile was launched near Kusong, north-west of the capital, Pyongyang, and flew 700km (430 miles), according to BBC.
Two missile launched last month but both failed according to CNN, with the rockets exploding just minutes into flight. Japan said the missile flew for about 30 minutes before landing in the Sea of Japan. Despite increasing tensions between our two countries, a senior North Korean diplomat said the country would be willing to somewhat hold back for the sake of the United States according to cnn. Now we wait and see what will happen?
