The South Korean military announced that North Korea fired what it described as an “unidentified projectile”, which appears to have exploded immediately after its launch.

A suspected missile was launched from an air base outside the capital, Pyongyang.

The base is the site of several launches, including previous tests the United States has claimed were ICBMs.

This comes as North Korea has stepped up its weapons testing in recent weeks.
