DANDONG, China — A projectile launched by North Korea that was believed to be a ballistic missile exploded shortly after launch Monday evening. The mid-air explosion was seen from Dandong, a city in Liaoning province, China.

Shortly after 9:40 PM (10:40 PM Japan time), a red light was spotted in the sky toward Tongchang-ri, a North Korean area about 60 kilometers southeast of Dandong. The Sohae Satellite Launch Station is located in Tongchang-ri.

The projectile rose slowly before bursting into a fireball seconds later, resembling an explosion.
