'Major, major' conflict with North Korea possible, says Trump

Tensions between the US and North Korea are at boiling point tonight, following the launch of a ballistic missile by the North. 

Although the test firing was labelled unsuccessful, it shows that Kim Jong Un won't bow to international pressure to cease his nuclear weapons programme. 

The missile was launched at the Puk-Chang airfield, north of the capital Pyongyang.

China is calling for calm and restraint, saying tensions on the peninsula have reached a critical point. Source: 1 NEWS
