North Korea Might Have Accidentally Hit Its Own Cities With A Missile

Papers around the world on Friday relayed a shattering exposé by the Diplomat magazine that an intermediate range missile fired by the hardline regime on April 28 past year veered off trajectory shortly after launch and plunged into Tokchon, a city of 237,000 residents less than 100 kilometers northeast of Pyongyang.

A North Korean missile has been reportedly crashed into its own cities after its failed launch. The Diplomat says that North Korea has the strategy of often using new sites for missile testing.

Time's Up also vows to fight for 'a significant increase of women in positions of leadership and power across industries'. The legal fund is just one focus of a wider initiative called Times Up , reportedly started by four female agents at CAA.

During its third test, the missile failed once again, reportedly because its first-stage engines failed.But what made matters worse was the fact that the missile crashed into a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings in the city of Tokchon in North Korea, not far from the capital, Pyongyang. The explosion destroyed some 1,850 buildings; death toll estimates range between 160 and 3,000. However, the account of any casualties and injuries have not been reported to date. The North's latest successful missile test involved a Hwasong-15, a model believed to be intercontinental - that is, having the capacity of flying over 5,500km.

If true, the report suggests the dangers of North Korean missile tests to countries beneath their flight paths, such as Japan.

Furthermore, North Korea had also earlier claimed that they were in possession of a missile that can reach all the way up to United States of America. Kim Jong Un even claimed that he has a nuclear button on his desk at all times - prompting US President Donald Trump to hit back saying his nuclear button is bigger.
