LONDON - North Korea ballistic missile launch fails. North Korea launched a ballistic missile early on Sunday, but the rocket exploded almost immediately, in an embarrassing failure that came one day after the regime in Pyongyang displayed several new missiles for the first time in a military parade. According to the Pentagon, North Korea launched the missile at 6.21am local time.

The failure came as Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator, was celebrating the 105th anniversary of his grandfather, the late Kim Il Sung who founded the nation.

On Saturday, North Korea held a military parade in Pyongyang where it revealed what appeared to be new intercontinental ballistic missiles. The missile launch came two days after China warned that a “storm is about to break” on the Korean peninsula because of rising tensions with Washington over North Korea’s nuclear programme.
