Did N.Korean missile hit own city? By

North Korea Might Have Accidentally Hit Its Own Cities With A Missile North Korean missile landed on its own town

A new report says North Korea hit one of its own cities past year during a failed missile test.

According to Asia-Pacific news agency The Diplomat, a Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile had a "catastrophic failure" shortly after take-off, which caused the destruction.

However The Diplomat has revealed the missile crash-landed in the North Korean city of Tokchon causing significant damage to buildings there.

North Korea has since conducted a flurry of nuclear and ballistic missile tests ramping up tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula.

Commercial satellite photographs show that there was widespread damage to factory or agricultural buildings in...

However, since April, North Korea hasn't held ballistic missile testing from Sinpo, it said.

North Korea has twice fired a Hwasong-12 missile over Japan.

Ramamoorthy's wife had at this point walked up to the back of the plane to inquire into the incident, the attendants added. When the flight landed at Detroit Metro Airport, Ramamoorthy was taken into custody by Wayne County Airport Authority.

North Korea has not been lucky with missiles of late with a string of failures that engulfed the nation. The accident in Tokchon was reportedly the third failed test of a Hwasong-12 missile that same month. Notably, the satellite images from Google Earth taken after the crash show a clear area.

The failed missile launch was reported by the western media but the fact that it may have crash landed on North Korean territory went unreported.

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

It marked the first missile launched since one was sacked across Japan and into the Pacific Ocean on September 15.

The regime claimed that the missile could reach the United States.

This all began when the North Korean leader claimed that he had a nuclear button on his desk at all times, to which Trump retorted back with a "I have a bigger and powerful one". Just this week, Kim said he has a button on his table for nuclear weapons that can reach the entire US mainland. With any luck, both President Trump and Kim Jong-un will cool down their war of words and not start World War III, accidentally or otherwise.

While North Korea has threatened the US mainland for months with nuclear weapons, intelligence and military experts said the regime lacked the ability to effectively deliver a nuclear warhead-this has now changed.
