North Korea (WCSC/CNN) -

North Korea failed at an attempted missile launch Sunday (local time), CNN reported. 

An attempted projectile launch by North Korea on Sunday failed, a South Korean defense ministry official told CNN.

The attempted launch comes a day after the regime of Kim Jong Un showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at its annual military parade.

North Korea's actions come as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels.

The US Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the region last weekend, and President Donald Trump has been tweeting this week that if China can't rein in North Korea's nuclear program, the United States will.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.
