North Korea attempted to launch a missile Tuesday, although it appeared to be unsuccessful, South Korea's military has said.

One missile was fired from the eastern city of Wonsan at 5.20 a.m., the South Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

It appears to be the latest in a string of missile tests as the country tries to advance its weapons program in defiance of the international community and its closest regional ally, China.

Local media reports suggested it was a medium-range Musudan missile; if confirmed, it would be the fourth time North Korea has tried and failed to launch this type of missile.
