Because of the secretive nature of functioning in North Korea, many say it is not possible to completely authenticate the report but that there is evidence to show that the IRBM caused destruction in a civilian area.

United States officials said the Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) was initially thought to have disintegrated mid-flight after it was sacked on 28 April a year ago. An analysis of satellite photographs suggests that it crashed into the North Korean town of Tokchon, where it destroyed a building close to what appears to be agricultural greenhouses.

The North Korean missile was launched on April 28, last year, from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province.

Since the earliest days of ballistic missiles by Nazi Germany in World War II, the most unsafe moments in missile tests and firing are the launch and immediate post-launch phases. It was meant to soar east and splash into the Sea of Japan, where most missiles tested in Pyongyang's ongoing nuclear and military build-up end up. The Hwasong-12 is a liquid fuel missile which uses combination of hypergolic propellant and oxidizer.

North Korea has not been lucky with missiles of late with a string of failures that engulfed the nation. However, it is not known whether any loss of life was reported.

As per The Diplomat, the explosion had created a significant damage to the buildings in the city.

He may have a nuclear button on his desk at all times but North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may not have complete control over his ballistic missiles.

Observers are also anxious that neighboring countries may regard it as an act of provocation or war should North Korean missiles and rockets veer off course and hit unintended foreign targets in South Korea, Japan or even China.
