According to a recent report by Diplomat, a Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile, tested by North Korea in April 28, 2017, failed halfway through its test flight and ended up crashing into Tokchon, a city few miles away from Pyongyang.
"The focus here is to continue ... to apply maximum pressure on North Korea", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Saunders confirmed.

North Korea would eventually claim to have successfully tested the Hwasong-12 following another launch on May 14, when the missile flew 430 miles, reaching an altitude of more than 1,245 miles before landing in the sea, 60 miles south of Russia's Vladivostok region. South Korea warned: "the show of force threatened the whole world".
The Diplomat report also claimed that North Korea's missile program was more advanced than the USA and its Allies had anticipated despite the April 28 launch failure and its inherent dangers.
According to the Telegraph, the defector was described as someone who was previously involved in the regime's missile program-and has retained links to former colleagues in the North.
It is believed that the test is likely to take place later this week or next. The first launch in 2012 had failed to accomplish that.

But more recent missile tests have been more successful and have travelled long distances, with some flying over parts of Japan.
The Unha-3 was 98-feet long and based on Soviet technology.
"The defector said there were likely two major objectives in launching a new long-range missile".
The report said that due to the nature of the Hwasong-12 missiles, which contain highly volatile fuel, the crash could have resulted in a massive explosion.
Past altercations have also involved Trump calling the North Korea's Supreme Leader as the "little rocket man", whereas, Kim Jong-un called the US President a "dotard" as a sign of insult.
"This is a very big missile", Michael Duitsman, a research associate at the Centre for Nonproliferation Studies, said in an analysis posted to Twitter. USA president Donald Trump had said North Korea is "doing the wrong thing", and that he would be sending an armada to Pyongyang.
