Kim Jong-un makes light of missile launch failure, guffawing manically like babies tickled

Video has emerged of Kim Jong-un in apparent hysterics as North Korea launches a missile from a submarine.

The missile failed in its initial flight stage, but that didn’t stop the dictator from having a good chuckle about it.

Behind him, a group of senior officials join in with the giggling.

A KN-11 submarine was tracked by the US Strategic Command operating near the east coast port of Sinpo on Saturday.

The missile shot up only a few miles before falling back into the sea

The mission should have ended in a controlled explosion, but the missile rose for a few miles then fell back into the sea.

Kim clearly sees the funny side of the military cock-up as he watches the disappointing spectacle on a screen.

He turns to his cronies chuckling, and like true Bond henchmen, they laugh along with him – as well they must, they are contractually bound to it.

The same location has been used for numerous weapons testing – but this time the missile is believed to have ended up in the sea somewhere near Japan.

The South Korean Defense Ministry confirmed a successful ejection from the submarine, but the result was clearly not what they were hoping for.
