N. Korea suffered a failed ballistic missile test in 2017

via Sputnik.
An allegedly unsuccessful test of a North Korean ballistic missile that exploded over a densely populated area has raised concerns about the possibility of similar accidents happening over the country’s capital Pyongyang or other populated areas, The Diplomat has reported.

The Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile reportedly failed minutes after it was launched on April 29, 2017 and crashed in the North Korean city of Tokchon with a population of about 240,000, causing “considerable damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings,” the Tokyo-based international news magazine wrote, citing a source in the US government with knowledge of North Korean weapons programs.

Hmm.  Why would this just be coming to light now?  This is another case where information was probably over classified and should have been open source.

If they can tell us when a missile test is probably gonna take place then telling us of a failure shouldn't be a stretch.
