[SEOUL] North Korea appears to have failed to launch a missile on Friday morning to mark the birthday of its founding president, South Korea's army said.

"The North appears to have attempted a missile test near its east coast early Friday morning, but it appears to have failed," South Korea's joint chiefs of staff said in a statement.

South Korean media reported on Thursday that Pyongyang was preparing a mid-range ballistic missile test, likely as part of celebrations for the birthday of founding president Kim Il Sung.
