SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea fired what appeared to have been an intermediate range ballistic missile on Thursday but it crashed seconds after the test launch, South Korea's defense ministry said.

A defense ministry official told Reuters that it appeared to be a Musudan missile with a range of more than 3,000 km (1,800 miles) - the same type of missile believed to have failed in a test launch earlier this month.
