North Korea apparently failed with an attempted missile launch Tuesday, the latest in a series of setbacks for a ballistic weapons program that aspires to threaten the U.S. mainland.The ministry declined to speculate on the missile type, but military sources cited by local media said it was a powerful, medium-range "Musudan" that has already undergone three failed launches this year.U.N. resolutions ban North Korea from any use of ballistic missile technology, although it regularly fires short-range missiles into the sea off its east coast.In April, the North failed three times to test fire a Musudan, which has an estimated range of anywhere between 2,500 and 4,000 kilometers (1,550 to 2,500 miles).South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted official sources as saying Tuesday's missile may have exploded on its mobile launcher.
