North Korea launched a missile on Sunday morning. Despite speculation that the USA was planning to shoot down the missile, that did not happen. In fact, the missile blew up within a few seconds of being launched. It never made it to the altitude needed in order to shoot it down. Of course, the stories that America was planning to shoot down the missile being tested were just media speculation. There's no way to know if there is any validity to them. Given the media track record on North Korea, the stories are most likely wrong.
