North Korea Tries To Launch Missile
The day after the anniversary of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, the North Koreans tried to launch a rocket, but ended up launching a dud. Experts were expecting a missile launch around this time to celebrate this anniversary.
They expected the missile to be launched towards Japan or at U.S. troops in South Korea, but it’s possible they were waiting to launch this missile towards Vice President Pence as he tours the region. He was in the air when that launch was attempted, but landed safely a few hours later in South Korea.
