US ARMY DE­TECTS FAILED N. KOREAN MIS­SILE LAUNCH

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: The US mil­i­tary said yes­ter­day it had de­tected an un­suc­cess­ful launch by North Korea of a pow­er­ful medium-range mis­sile ca­pa­ble of hit­ting US bases as far away as Guam. UN res­o­lu­tions pro­hibit North Korea from us­ing bal­lis­tic mis­sile tech­nol­ogy, and this lat­est test came as the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil is de­bat­ing fresh sanc­tions on Py­ongyang af­ter its fifth nu­clear test in Septem­ber. The US Strate­gic Com­mand said the launch, de­tected just af­ter midday Satur­day Korea time, was be­lieved to be of a much-hyped Musu­dan mis­sile. – AFP
