U.S. Pacific Command is now reporting that North Korea’s supposedly ballistic missile failure “did not leave North Korean territory,” which indicates it might have been a different kind of test, per Daily Caller.

South Korean government officials told the Korea Times that the explosion over North Korea might not have been a failure, rather a test of a nuclear warhead.

Check it out:

“We don’t believe the mid-air explosion was an accident,” South Korean cable news channel YTN quoted government officials as saying. “It’s believed the explosion was a test to develop a nuclear weapon different from existing ones.”

That North Korea launched the missile across its territory from the west coast was a little unusual, leading some to suspect that perhaps the North intentionally kept the weapon from splashing down in the sea where a U.S. Navy carrier strike group is stationed.

Military experts apparently told the Korea Times that the likelihood a mechanical failure caused the mid-air explosion was actually “very low.”
