SEOUL: A North Korean missile launch likely failed on Tuesday, South Korea’s military said, the fourth in a series of high-profile failures that somewhat temper recent worries that the North is pushing quickly toward its goal of a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach America’s mainland. South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said the missile was a powerful mid-range Musudan, which could potentially reach US military bases in Asia and the Pacific.
