North Korea launched a missile from its east coast early Tuesday local time but it appears to have failed, South Korean military officials say.

The South Korean military was studying the launch and said it was stepping up surveillance due to signs that North Korea was preparing for a ballistic missile launch.

The North is banned by the UN from using any ballistic missile technology.

Japan had also put its military on alert Monday for a possible ballistic missile firing.

North Korea is believed to have more than 1,000 missiles of varying capabilities, including long-range missiles which could one day strike the US.
