A report in The Independent quoted U.S. officials as saying that the Hwasong-12 ballistic missile landed in Tokchon - about 150 kilometers from Pyongyang - after being launched on April 28 of a year ago.

North Korea's pursuit to acquire nuclear weapons and building missiles to launch them might have had a drastic impact on the world, but the collateral damage that it might cause to the hermit kingdom in the long-term can't be ignored.
Since the earliest days of ballistic missiles by Nazi Germany in World War II, the most risky moments in missile tests and firing are the launch and immediate post-launch phases. The Diplomat magazine quoted a source in the United States intelligence wing as saying that the missile exploded on impact and caused extensive damage to industrial and.or agricultural buildings where it crashed.
Although, the fact that the missile had failed was known, but the location of the crash was unknown, untilthe revelation came fromThe Diplomat magazine.The Diplomat has substantiated its claims with Google Earth images. 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. The explosion destroyed some 1,850 buildings; death toll estimates range between 160 and 3,000.
He may have a nuclear button on his desk at all times but North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may not have complete control over his ballistic missiles.

Reports suggest that the Hwasong-12 missile that was launched but malfunctioned, is the third failed test in a single month (April 2017). The consequences in the region could be catastrophic.
