​North Korea reportedly failed to launch two more intermediate-range missiles this week, bringing the tally of recent unsuccessful launches to three. US Strategic Command systems detected and tracked the two attempted launches, at 4:43 p.m. Central Daylight Time on April 27, and 5:24 a.m. CDT on April 28, the command said in a statement. North American Aerospace Defense Command determined the launches did not pose a threat to North America. South Korean Defense officials said the launch appeared to be the second and third time the North has tested Musudans, new intermediate-range missiles, according to The Associated Press. North Korea on April 14 reportedly tried to test the missile, which ended in a “fiery” explosion on the launch pad, according to the Pentagon.
