North Korea has been stepping up the pace of its missile tests, raising tensions across the continent. The launch failure Wednesday highlights some recent setbacks for the country's missile program.
As of Wednesday morning, officials hadn't said what kind of missile was involved in the failed launch. But if it was an intermediate-range Musudan, Wednesday's test would echo seven failures in 2016.
