North Korea attempted to launch a missile from the country's east coast early on Sunday, but the launch was a failure, said the BBC.
Saturday, the isolated Republic celebrated the 105th birthday of its founder Kim Il-Sung, grandfather of current leader Kim Il Sung.
The failed missile test was not a nuclear test of the type specifically warned against by President Donald Trump.
According to CNN, the missile never reached flight.
