The Chinese article is referring to an incident that happened on April 15, 2016, when the test of a BM-25 (Chinese source: KN-08) medium-range missile "Musudan" (Korean nickname: "dancer to the end of the water 舞水端") ended in disaster.
Only a few days earlier, on April 9, North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un had confirmed that his country had successfully tested the engine of an intercontinental missile that would allow to deliver a nuclear blow to North America or South Korea. [Source: France 24 TV]
Recent missile tests followed earlier North Korean claims it was able to construct a mini-nuke fitting to North Korea's missiles. Such information was, as well, published by Chinese sources that doubted the efficiency of America's missile defence system Patriot-AC3 against mini-nukes directly delivered to their targets without any use of missiles at all.
OOPS! The North Korean propaganda video quoted only some days ago is not any longer available. Until further notice, you are only entitled to the North Korean TV test card. Videos, directly from the North, will soon be provided instead at this place !
[My original description of a composite video from specialized U.S. origin:
North Korean propaganda video featuring a satellite launch in 2009 and
mixed with the alleged Japanese reaction on an assumed missile attack
that could not be detected in time by expensive U.S. equipment.]
Now, you can even make your own choice of videos published by North Korea's Central TV. - Like it or not, that's up to you !
