SEOUL, April 15 (Yonhap) -- North Korea attempted to launch what is presumed to be the medium-range ballistic missile Musudan early Friday from its east coast, but the launch ended in failure, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. "North Korea appears to have tried a missile launch from the East Sea area early morning today, but it is presumed to have failed," the JCS said. Sources said the launched missile was the intermediate-range ballistic missile Musudan, also known as the BM-25. It was North Korea's first test-launch of the Musudan missile which the North is believed to have deployed against South Korea and other countries. The North may have some 50 Musudan missiles.

The "failure" could be a red herring.
They need to be watched carefully.
